I was interviewed by Kayley Thomas on 7th August 2012. This was the last day of my London Ambassador Shift at The South Bank Information POD over the Olympics 2012.

It was for Good Morning Wales on BBC Radio Wales aired 7.20am on Saturday 11th August 2012. Good Morning Wales were based in the Olympic Park for 2 weeks and were talking about the different volunteering roles over the Olympic Games.

Caught the National Portrait Gallery / BT Road To 2012 touring photographic exhibition today at Cardiff Bay.

Consisting of over 30 photographic portraits of those working behind-the-scenes of London 2012, alongside renowned athletes.

It’s worth seeing if you’re Cardiffian interested in the Olympics & Paralympics. It’s outside the Millennium Centre until 27 May.

I’ll post a few more photos from this over the next few weeks.

I am one of three volunteers interviewed on the BBC News (UK) website today for:

London 2012: What motivates Olympic volunteers?

Talking about being chosen as a London Ambassador. Interesting to hear about other Games volunteers. I will definitely be keeping an eye on the BBC’s 2012 page, full of all the latest information as regards the Olympic and Paralympics!
