Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Games

When I visited the Winter Paralympic Games back in 2010, one of the things that I remember most well was how friendly and helpful the volunteers were. I thought to myself at the time, ‘how will grumpy ol’ Londoners be in 2012?’

But much to my pleasure, visiting the Park for the first time yesterday to watch Handball at the Copper Box Arena, I noticed how similarly friendly and excited our volunteers were all round the Park. They’re really showcasing Londoners in a fine manner and without them, the Games wouldn’t have been able to run, so I think they deserve a post dedicated to them on here!
