Recount your most memorable moments in London during the Olympic and Paralympics period and share your “I Was There” stories.

Stories could revolve around a place you visited, a meal you had, a piece of clothing or item you bought, people you met, a conversation, or an Olympic moment that made you feel proud. Westfield in London is giving everyone their own ‘I was there’ story which will live on as part of the legacy of London 2012. This summer, a competition between ‘Team East’ and ‘Team West’ will generate a healthy rivalry between the two sides of London while showcasing the best of the city.

There are 3 opportunities to win prizes by picking Team East or Team West and sharing your #IWASTHERE story. Thanks to Westfield for sponsoring this post – here are the three ways you can enter the I Was There campaign to win £25,000 worth of gift cards:
