The Unsung Hero’s of London 2012
Firstly, let’s all take a minute to say Thank You to all the awesome volunteer ‘Games Makers’ who are giving up their time this summer to ensure that the London 2012 Olympic Games run smoothly!
The Games Makers are giving up their time for free to support London 2012 and will be the face of the Olympics to the many thousands of visitors who will descend on the capital.
Games Makers are travelling from across the UK to volunteer and usually at their own expense. With property prices rocketing for London 2012, it can be difficult for Games makers to find somewhere comfortable and affordable to stay.
Homestayfriend came across Gary’s story on Twitter. He, like many other Games Makers, lives outside London. He wants the opportunity to take part in this once in a lifetime event so has volunteered his time. Gary launched a video appeal on Twitter for help in funding his accommodation costs for London 2012. We, at Homestayfriend HQ loved Gary’s initiative and immediately felt compelled to help. We’ve offered Gary 3 free nights with one of our homestay hosts. At least that will go a little way to helping him with the costs!
Here’s the link to Gary’s fundraising video:
