The Olympics experience:
One of our very own PMI UK volunteers helped out at the Olympics this year. Venu Yadlapati PMI, says it is was a once in a life time experience! He volunteered from the ‘Team London group’ that worked to support the Mayor of London and the Greater London authority. When he isn’t volunteering Venu works for for Mahindra Satyam and volunteers with the PMI UK in varying capacities with both Yohan Abraham, the volunteering Director and with the Director of Communications, Ommara Hussain.
In the closing ceremony, The President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) says ’We will never forget the smiles, the kindness and the support of the wonderful volunteers, the much-needed heroes of these Games’.These Games have proved that Britain is a great volunteering nation. More than 100,000 volunteers worked an average of 100 hours for Olympics. These volunteers came from a diverse range of communities and backgrounds. They had teamed up with volunteering groups like Team London (GLA), Games makers (LOCOG) and Transport Ambassadors (TFL), Heathrow Volunteer group to create history!
