olympic park overview

I wish the Olympics could come around all over again - just so I could volunteer and be part of the amazing Games Makers phenomenon.

My guest today, the Rev. Louise Brown, from All Saints Church at Dedworth, was a Games Maker Chaplain during both the Olympic and Paralympic Games, and told me she has never experienced such a fantastic feeling of being part of something special. From a crowd on the tube spontaneously bursting into song, through to making a connection with a young Kenyan athlete who still keeps in touch; from helping athletes come to terms with success and failure, through to her heart nearly bursting with happiness at the Paralympics closing ceremony.

I so envy her!
