A SUMMER OF SPORT!

June 30, 2021

The weather may be grey, but Summer 2021 is shaping up to be an exciting Summer of Sport headed up by some colourful characters!

Throughout June, Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games mascot, Perry, helped launch the Commonwealth Collective… Skillzy the official UEFA EURO 2020 mascot has been spotted in EURO 2020 fan zones all over Europe… Snickers commissioned a life-seize Snickers bar costume to head up their #Snickers4Scotland campaign… and Peppa Pig teamed up with Team GB’s Pride the Lion and Olympic athlete Greg Rutherford for her #PeppaSummerofSport campaign aimed at getting kids moving in the run up to Tokyo 2020!
