Over 300 people applied to be Trailblazers volunteers. They come from all sorts of backgrounds - yesterday I met a nanny, a sponsorship expert and a web designer. They will come to LOCOG one day a week where they will be allocated to help a particular department. In my team (Communications), among other things, they will be helping us answer the questions from the public.
Obviously it is amazing to talk to people who are inspired to give up their time to be part of London 2012. Aside from the practical help and support they offer, I am sure the energy, enthusiasm and unique perspectives they will bring to LOCOG will help us be an even better organisation.
