Enrych Coordinator became Games Maker
Enrych Berkshire Coordinator -Lucy Burden took on a dream role as a volunteer games maker for the London 2012 Olympic games. Talking about this amazing experience Lucy said “Seven years ago I watched London win the bid to host the Games and I knew then, despite not being a huge fan of most sports, that I had to be part of it, even if it meant cleaning toilets.
Fast forward to 2012 and I’d been interviewed and selected and they gave me the role of driver, of both the (in)famous BMWs and of wheelchair accessible vehicles. Over my time at the Games I’ve had the privilege to drive Athletes, Officials, Coaches and foreign dignitaries and spent time in one of the most amazing venues on the planet with a great group of fellow volunteers. It was an amazing and humbling experience and one that I know I won’t be able to repeat in this lifetime!”
