The Olympic Torch Relay came through Loughborough University campus on Tuesday 3rd July supported by Medal Makers volunteers.
The event could not have proceeded as smoothly as it did without the Medal Makers’ help and support and so a huge thank you to all of the volunteers!
The event was covered in the local and national news and the sea of pink T-shirts featured heavily in that coverage
The Medal Makers team have received this piece of feedback from one of the sports managers –
‘Just wanted to say how helpful and friendly all the volunteers at the Netball centre appeared today…………. they (the volunteers) will play a key role in ensuring access is limited to the centre and players.’
Indeed, all Medal Makers have been commended for their professional and friendly manner and willingness to stay the distance in order to get things done.
We are now in our second week of the Preparation Camp and we are starting to see more teams come through the kitting out process; others will stay on campus for training and further preparation.
Some large teams have already come through kitting out, rowing, sailing and cycling to name a few and it has been fantastic to be a part for their preparation for the London 2012 Olympic Games. Picture of the Team GB Triathletes outside Sir Dennis Rooke.
We are stil looking forward to lots more Olympians to come through Kitting Out . Gymnastics, athletics, football and hockey are just some of the teams yet to enter the Preparation Camp and be kitted out by the Medal Makers based there.
