With just under two years to go until the 2012 London Olympics, Jo is urging local residents and sports groups to register as volunteers for the event.
The London Olympic Committee is seeking volunteers to help with everything from transport to medical assistance, catering and ticket sales for the 2012 Olympics.
Volunteers are essential to a successful Olympics, and will benefit from witnessing and being a part of such a unique experience.
Volunteer registration is now open and lasts until midnight of 27th October. You can register now at www.london2012.com/volunteering.
Jo has written to sporting groups and organisations around East Dunbartonshire to highlight the opportunities available.
Commenting, Jo said:
“This is a fantastic opportunity for people from all over the country to get involved in a historic event for the UK. As a volunteer, you would get to see behind the scenes of the Olympic Games, and help make the games a success. Anyone who is interests should go to London2012.com before 27th October to have a look at the roles available and register their interest.”
