Interested in volunteering for London 2012?

Morden Assembly Hall is the venue for an open meeting on Thursday 28 May discussing the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and how residents can volunteer to help make them a great success.

The meeting which anyone can attend, will provide information on the skills needed to volunteer for the games, how to register, and the Personal Best programme. Also on the agenda is traffic and transport, the effect on the borough’s transport system and the preparations being made to manage the actual period of the Games 2012.

Speakers will talk about the London 2012 Olympic ‘INSPIRE’ mark and the logo for projects inspired by the Games. This is aimed at community groups and not for profit organisations who can use the logo on posters, brochures and websites if they match the values and themes of the Cultural Olympiad. It recognises that a project has been ‘inspired by London 2012’ and reflects the values of the Olympic and Paralympic movements.

Cabinet member for Environment and Leisure Services, Councillor David Simpson says
“This is an amazing opportunity for people to get involved in a spectacular event. Volunteering for the London 2012 Games will give them a great sense of satisfaction and achievement and could increase their career and job prospects. I cannot recommend this more highly as it simply is a once in a lifetime experience”.

The meeting starts at 6.45 and finishes at 8.30pm.
