Coronavirus, an update from Active Cornwall

Be a part of the London 2012 Games!


Don’t miss your ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity to volunteer and be a part of the largest event ever staged in the UK: London 2012! Closing date for applications is midnight on Wednesday October 27.

The London 2012 Volunteer Programme seeks to recruit up to 70,000 volunteers or ‘London 2012 Games Makers’ from different backgrounds and communities. If you are inspirational, open, respectful, team-focused, distinctive and have a ‘can do’ attitude then you could become one of the faces of London 2012.

The difference between a good games and a great games is the volunteers; you don’t need to be sporty, you just need to have the passion and enthusiasm to make the games as memorable and inspiring as it can be.

There are a wide and diverse range of roles that you could be given to play an integral role at the heart of London 2012 and they want as many people as possible from Cornwall to make the most of this amazing opportunity. You won’t be giving trackside massages or firing the starting pistol but you may get to hold Usain Bolt’s tracksuit!

To play your part in making this the best event ever to be held in the UK, during the summer of 2012, go to: The site provides all the information you need to know about becoming a games maker, the different roles and venues, along with how to apply.

Wednesday October 27 is fast approaching so don’t waste any time and get your application in now!
