Postbox to be painted gold in Maidenhead for Paralympic star Sophie

A postbox in Maidenhead will be painted gold to celebrate Sophie Christiansen's winning Paralympic performances.

The 24-year-old, who lives in Boyn Hill Road, has won three equestrian gold medals at the London 2012 Games with her horse Janeiro, and a postbox in Maidenhead High Street will be transformed by the Royal Mail tomorrow to mark her success in the team open event.

Painting will begin at 10am.

First class stamps featuring Sophie's image will also be on sale in about 500 post offices across the UK tomorrow, and in a further 4,700 branches from Saturday.

A postbox in London Road, Sunningdale, was also painted gold in honour of Sophie on Tuesday, as she lived in the town most of her life and attended Charters School.
