A third of people wish they had volunteered to help out at last year's Olympics following the success of the so-called Games Makers, according to a study. A similar number said the Games Makers positively changed the way they viewed volunteering, a survey of more than 2,000 adults found.
An estimated 873,600 volunteering hours have been put back into communities by the Games Makers since September, said the report by Olympic legacy charity Join In.
The Games Maker Choir now hopes to keep singing - and keep the Olympic legacy alive.
"The choir is an embodiment of the spirit of the Games Makers and this joyous occasion which is the Games. It reflects on the team spirit, and excitement and unity that has captured the country and the volunteers in particular. Importantly too, Victoria and the Choir have shown that you really can achieve what you set your mind to. The Games Maker Choir therefore provides the volunteers and the country with a way of keeping the Olympic legacy going."
The Games Maker Choir was set up by a group of enthusiastic Olympic volunteers during the London Games.
University student Victoria Verbi decided to set up a choir within the Olympic Park - and within two days of putting a notice in the volunteer newsletter, she'd gathered a group of more than 200 singers.
After one brief rehearsal, the choir performed at the bandstand in the Olympic Park.
