Lottery Good Causes

More than 16 million people across the UK will take part in the Cultural Olympiad: the largest cultural celebration in the history of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. To highlight the marriage of sport and culture in the UK’s 2012 celebrations The National Lottery created The 12 Poets of 2012.

As part of this project one poet from each of the National Lottery’s 12 funding regions was selected to meet an Olympic or Paralympic medal hopeful and write poetry inspired by their feeling and experiences.

The poem will be showcased in the Olympic Park during the Games and is voiced here by Alan Dedicoat, 'Voice of the Balls' on the BBC Draw Show.
