'2012 inspired' volunteers¬†continue to create a volunteering¬†legacy¬†in Suffolk!
Olympic handballer Louise Jukes and Opening Ceremony volunteer Russell Moon were the guest speakers at the Celebration of '2012 inspired' Volunteering held in Ipswich recently. The event, attended by over sixty Volunteers and local Event Organisers, was a chance to look back at London 2012 as well as looking forward to the continuing success and development of the Sport & Event Volunteering Project.¬†The event was attended by Suffolk volunteers who have been inspired to get involved locally as a result of London 2012 - What a team of stars!
