Sport Maker Olympic workshop in Louth

A WORKSHOP about the London 2012 Games will take place in Louth.

It aims to inspire people to get involved with sport through volunteering and helping the local community.

Whether you want to organise a football tournament for your friends or encourage your village to run a mini Olympic Games, this workshop could be for you.

The workshop is delivered through Sport Makers; a programme which recruits new sports volunteers in the run up to the London 2012 Games and beyond.

Lizzie Couling, Workforce Development Manager at Lincolnshire Sports Partnership, said: “There are so many benefits of being a Sport Maker; you can learn new skills, enhance your CV, build confidence and meet new people, and give something back to sport or the local community.

“A number of local organisations have registered opportunities for Sport Makers such as the Lincoln 10k which is looking to recruit volunteers to help support the event. We want to recruit over 500 Sport Makers in Lincolnshire.”

To attend the workshop, you must be 16 plus and registered as a Sport Maker online at

The workshop will take place on Monday January 9 at The Pavillion, London Road, Louth.
