Games Makers spirit lives on in Sport Makers
One Olympic and Paralympic legacy programme aims to continue where the London 2012 Games Makers started and bring the spirit of the Games to your local area.
A huge part of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games was the army of 70,000 volunteers called Games Makers. These volunteers made the Games happen by making it a pleasurable experience for all that went to the Games and helped to inspire a generation of new volunteers.
Sport Makers aim to continue the amazing work of the London 2012 Games Makers by bringing their spirit to the local level and making sport happen. Some do it informally with their friends, neighbours or colleagues by organising a kick about with their mates or a weekly game of tennis with their work colleagues.
Others do not take part themselves. Instead, they do all the other things that make sport possible, like organising a sports event for their village, managing a team of race volunteers or helping out a sports club with its day to day running.
Either way Sport Makers are a true legacy of the London 2012 Games and will ensure that the wonderful Games Maker spirit is brought back to every community.
