Two years to the London Olympic & Paralympic Games

LondonAmbassadorsIn order to have a successful Games thousands of volunteers are needed to make it happen.  Today marks the two year countdown and is being used to announce ways of how you can be a part of this once in a lifetime experience.

There are two main volunteering programmes during the Games. Firstly the Mayor of London and his team at City Hall are recruiting “London Ambassadorswho will be on duty as the welcome face of London at key entry points e.g. airports, rail stations and tourist hot-spots like Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden etc to welcome the world to the host city of the Olympic Games.  You can register from today

Secondly the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG) is recruiting “Games Makers” who will be volunteering in and around the Olympic venues – there are a huge number of roles, ranging from doctors to dope testers and from sports marshals to press operations and also thousands of general helpers needed to make the Games happen.
