Olympic games maker from Wallington pays tribute to volunteers
An Olympic volunteer paid trinute to the thousands of volunteers who made the London Games a success.
Tony Hazeldine, 74, from Wallington got to experience two different roles as a volunteer - as a games maker and a London ambassador.
Games makers were on hand at all the venues answering questions and directing people, where as it was the job of the London Ambassadors to welcome the world to London.
He said the most popular question he was asked as a London ambassador was the direction of the nearest toilet.
Mr Hazeldine is the Sutton and Merton governor of the Royal Marsden Cancer Hospital, and also a fundraiser.
He said: "I think that the whole thing has been extremely well organised.
"I’m amazed by the motivation of the games makers.
"I’m very surprised at how well they carried out their duties. It’s a marvellous thing to see."
A total of 70,000 volunteers were responsible for making London 2012 happen.
