Sainsbury's Flint has been selected to be part of the Sainsbury's Paralympic Torch Experience.
As part of Sainsbury's Paralympic sponsorship, one of the official Paralympic Torches will be taken to a Sainsbury's store in every Supermarket Region and Convenience Area between the 13th - 22nd August, in the build up to the start of the Paralympic Torch Relay. The Flint store was selected thanks to the great work they have already demonstrated in raising the profile of the Paralympic Games
Sainsbury's Flint would like to invite the residents of Flintshire to come along to the store to see the torch on Saturday 18th August between 12.30 and 3pm.
The London 2012 Paralympic Torch Relay itself runs from Friday 24th - Wednesday 29th August. National Flames will be lit at Flame Festivals in London, Belfast, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Stoke Mandeville between the 24th-28th before the Paralympic Flame is carried in a 24hr Torch Relay from Stoke Mandeville to the Olympic Stadium between the 28th-29th August, to start the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
Only 620 Torchbearers will get to carry the Paralympic Torch, meaning that this opportunity is an exclusive chance for customers and colleagues to see and be photographed with a piece of Great British history.
