Sign up for 2012 . . . by October 27th

Gamesmakers – the people who will make the Games happen.  A lot of them are bound to be Londoners and now is the time to put your name forward.

Get the word out to anyone who’d like to participate in the Olympics and Paralympics by being a volunteer – you need to sign up by 27th October to be considered.  Thousands have applied already!

LOCOG is keen to welcome volunteers from all communities in London, including religious ones.  The code to use on the online form, if you belong to a religious group, is ABC.  Easy to remember.

Duncan Green of LOCOG’s Community Outreach Group (Faith) is hoping to join us for an update before the end of this year.  After a slow start, things are certainly beginning to move – now is the time to get involved.

South London Inter Faith Group has suggested Inter Faith Walks in each borough in July 2012 – something we’ve talked about at LBFN and support.

A few London projects have already won the Inspire mark.  Check the list – your community might be *inspired* to do something, too.  It’s an ideal opportunity for faith and multi-faith groups to do something in partnership with their local borough council, NHS trust or police service.

  1. London Inter Faith Walks in 2012

    South London Inter Faith Group is promoting a coordinated inter faith walk event in 2012 at the time of the Olympics and Paralympics.

    The event will consist of as many as possible local inter faith walks across the whole of London during the weekend 14 and 15 July 2012. Local groups might choose the Saturday or the Sunday, or both, depending on local factors.

    The aim is to use this time when the global spotlight is on London to celebrate the multi faith character of London and to demonstrate the inter faith collaboration that is taking place.

    It is intended that the 2012 inter faith walks will leave a legacy in the form of faith trails for schools and other groups.
