One year on from the London Olympics, a new photography exhibition looks at the Games impact on some of the 70 thousand volunteers.
The free display, at Stratfords 'ViewTube' tells a visual story about 17 gamesmakers who made the whole thing possible.
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.
After the success of the Games Makers during the Olympics, volunteers will be in place to welcome tourists to London for the next three summers.
The plan was announced by the Mayor's Volunteering Adviser, Veronica Wadley, at the London Assembly this morning.
The scheme will take place from July to September, during the same six-week period as London's Olympics and Paralympics.
London 2012 'Games Makers' are being encouraged to dig out their purple and red uniforms.
Six months on from the opening ceremony, they're being called upon to recreate the spirit of the Games by volunteering at local sports clubs.
For many people, the "Games Makers" epitomised the spirit of 2012.
Now, those Olympic heroes are making a bid for the Christmas Number One.
Here's Rags Martel.
The Games Maker Choir now hopes to keep singing - and keep the Olympic legacy alive.
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.
They were the unsung heroes of the London Olympics - but now the Games Makers are doing the singing themselves.
The Games Maker Choir, made up of volunteers from the Olympics, is releasing a Christmas charity single called "I Wish For You The World."
Proceeds will go to the British Olympic Foundation and British Paralympic Association, to be spent on developing opportunities for aspiring young people to pursue their sporting dreams.
The track features singer-songwriter Alistair Griffin.
