The man who helped mastermind this year's Olympic Games is visiting Leicestershire tomorrow to say thank-you for the role played by volunteers.
Lord Sebastian Coe, chairman of the London Organising Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games, is visiting Loughborough College, where he will be talking to volunteers about their part in creating a lasting legacy.
The gamesmakers will be thanked by Lord Coe for their contribution towards helping thousands of spectators enjoy this summer's spectacle.
He said: "I'm delighted to be returning to Loughborough, a place I have a huge affection for, to see first-hand the incredible work being done to secure a lasting legacy from the London 2012 Games for Leicester and Leicestershire."
The visit has been organised by Inspire LeicesterShire, a committee set up to create a legacy from the 2012 Games.
The body's chairman, Andy Reed, said: "The past three years has seen some truly inspiring efforts."
He said Inspire LeicesterShire had supported 62 volunteers through a gamesmaker grant scheme and inspired more than 8,000 children and young people by taking elite athletes into schools and community groups.
