Volunteer for London 2012

At 4am the other day I had a car waiting outside my house waiting to make it to TV Centre for BBC Breakfast news. As an ambassador for the London 2012 Volunteering Programme I was encouraging the general public to support and get behind the programme - become a London Games Maker! We are aiming to get 70,000 Londoners to sign up as volunteers. It‘s hugely important to the success of the games and it is one of the big things I remember about Vancouver. It was something for the whole nation and it will be the same here with the bubble of excitement growing in and around London and at the different venues. Obviously there are only so many people who can compete and be competitive but what a good way to help with the experience and to be part of it. Hopefuls must be at least 18 on January 1, 2012, available to volunteer for at least 10 days during either the Olympic Games or the Paralympic Games and at least three days of training before the go and sign up on
