Volunteering is an excellent way to be part of the world's most exciting sporting event, the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The Essex Ambassador Scheme is seeing corps of volunteers helping out at various venues across Essex, both during and in the lead up to the London 2012 Games. In Essex the mountain biking is was held at Hadleigh Farm, whilst the canoe slalom took place on the Herts/Essex border at the Lee Valley White Water Centre.
Following a successful launch in September 2011 more than 300 Essex were recruited as the 'face' of Essex to give a warm welcome to those visiting. Click here for further information about The Essex Ambassadors Scheme and view photos.
