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.
