The National Lottery’s original ‘I Am Team GB’ campaign, which was launched in July in collaboration with ITV Creative and ITV AdVentures, will be concluded with an event on 27 August organised by The National Lottery and ITV for returning Olympians. The team hope to create the nation’s biggest sports day.
