Colleagues from Thomas Cook in Milton Keynes did their bit to bring home gold for Great Britain as part of the company’s Games Time Staff for the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games.

Thomas Cook, the Official Short Break provider to London 2012, selected 160 consultants from across the UK to host customers who booked Games Breaks packages through the company.

Sales consultants Emily Ward and Stacey Borthwick were among those chosen.

Emily said: “As a member of the Games Time Staff, we forged a vital link between our customers on Games Breaks and London 2012. From extensive knowledge of London 2012 venues to the location of ATMs, we were the eyes and ears of the Games.”

Stacey added: “It was a tremendous honour to be representing Great Britain in this way. This is an event that doesn’t happen very often in the UK so it is an experience that will always be in my memory.”
