London 2012 Olympic and Paralympics Memories Stamp Cover Signed by Dame Kelly Holmes - BC456S

Celebrate the spectacle of the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics Games with this stamp cover signed by Dame Kelly Holmes.

Here at the Post Office Shop, we have a large range of collectible coins and stamps available which commemorate a wide variety of events and themes. Within this selection is the Olympic and Paralympics Memories Stamp Cover.

As Glasgow hosted the 2014 Commonwealth Games, we thought that we would remember the last sporting event to be hosted in the UK; the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympics games.

This is a special memory from a very special year where the Olympics and Paralympics where held in London in 2012. This stunning cover features the four Olympic stamps taken from the Miniature Sheet which captured the full atmosphere and excitement that the games created. It is enhanced further by the superb illustration of London Tower Bridge and the Olympic Rings on the cover showing the display which London put on for the London 2012 Olympics.

Cancelled on the first day of release with a specially designed Stratford E20 postmark and personally signed by Dame Kelly Holmes, this would make the perfect addition to any collection if you are a fan of the Olympics, Paralympics or Commonwealth Games, or even sport in general.

Before retiring from athletics in 2005, Dame Kelly Holmes was an inspiration to many in the 800 metres and 1500 metre events. She won a gold medal for both distances at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens and still holds the British records for the 600, 800, 1000 and 1500 distances.

For her achievements in athletics she has won numerous awards and was appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) in 2005.

The Olympic and Paralympics Games are about much more than sporting excellence. Underpinning the Games is the philosophy of Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the Modern Olympic Movement.

Pierre saw that that the games were an ideal opportunity to develop a set of universal principles or Value that could be applied to education and to society as a whole, as well as to sport itself.

These values are:

  • P Personal Excellence
  • R Respect and Friendship
  • I Inspiration
  • D Determination and Courage
  • E Equality
