Working in conjunction with Visit Richmond, the Rotary Clubs and the local Police, Richmond Council is seeking 1000 volunteers to help provide information and assistance to visitors during the six Olympic events which will take place between the 24 July and the 1 August.
At each event, volunteers will work in teams and will be instantly recognisable and excellently equipped with a sash, a bag and a map, thanks to accessories funded by the Metropolitan Police.
Cllr Pamela Fleming, Strategic Cabinet Member for Community, Business and Culture said:
“Richmond upon Thames has a great reputation for volunteering and we’re looking for community members to come forward and use their local knowledge. This role will suit people who live locally and don't have too far to travel but it is also a great opportunity for residents to use their language skills. We expect to be welcoming tourists from around the world to show off all that Richmond has to offer.”
