One of the biggest legacies of London 2012 will be in sports
Some 70,000 volunteers were needed to deliver a successful
Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012. From spectator services such
as ticket control and information points to medical and language
services, volunteers will carry out essential tasks to ensure the
Games run smoothly.
With competition for volunteering opportunities as fierce as the
sporting competition itself, Medway Council hopes the volunteering
spirit will spread wider than the 2012 Games themselves and that
includes right here in Medway.
