It’s remarkable to think that just two months ago, we were still waiting for the Games to begin. Since then, we’ve witnessed a fantastic summer of sport, with remarkable performances from the finest athletes in the world, staged in world-class venues in front of millions of passionate spectators.
These have all been possible because of you – our remarkable, inspiring Games Makers.
It’s clear that you have caught the imagination of the public. From the spontaneous ovations at the Opening and Closing Ceremonies to the great celebrations during Monday’s parade, people everywhere have been expressing their thanks for your contribution.
And on behalf of everyone at London 2012, I’d like to add mine. As I said right at the start of the Games Maker selection process, volunteers really do make the difference between a good and a great Games, and you have been fantastic. Whatever your role or venue, you were all so crucial to our whole operation coming together as smoothly as it did.
I hope you will take your passion and generosity of spirit and continue to volunteer whether this is in your own community, at a large sporting event or at local sports club. I wish you all the very best for the future.
