EVENT ORGANISERS

Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park’s Park Champions are continuing the volunteer legacy of the 2012 Games and provide excellent support for events taking place at the Park.

With a wealth of local knowledge, Park experience and welcoming enthusiasm, the Park Champions will provide a fantastic addition to the visitor experience and smooth running of your event. In addition, the Park Mobility Service ensures that the access needs of your customers are also met.

Park Champion Volunteers

Why use the Park Champions?

  • Park Champion event volunteers are experienced, trained, passionate and knowledgeable.
  • They have been specifically trained to meet the requirements of Park visitors and to support event organisers on event days.
  • Park Champions have extensive knowledge of the Park and the surrounding areas leading to the Park such as Westfield Stratford City, transport hubs and high footfall areas which visitors to the Park pass through on their way to and from events.
  • Other landowners (e.g. Westfield, station managers, other transport hubs) are happy to allow Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park’s volunteers to have a presence on routes to the Park offering a warm welcome to people passing through on their way to events.

All health and safety requirements have been accounted for as part of the volunteer provision including:

  • Role specific training
  • Uniforms
  • Insurance cover (when managed directly by a member of the Volunteer Team)
  • Volunteer health and safety
  • Codes of Conduct
  • Team Leaders (who have additional training including: First Aid, Managing a Team and Welcome All disability awareness)

What our customers say

5/5
"I want to personally thank each and every one of you for a fantastic service to both the Park & Stadium visitors on Saturday. Each of you made a difference in the warm welcome each fan and visitor received and the help you provided them on their onward journey, either to their seat or to another destination in the park. Great job everyone!"

“To be honest the support from the Park Champions was a really good surprise, I didn’t know what to expect from people without experience in the Shell Eco-marathon but their enthusiasm and motivation to help made the difference. I have seen motivated people and all the comments from my core team members were the same “We need Park Champion members next year, they are so efficient.” You all were part of the Technical team and I hope to see you next year, it was a real pleasure having all of you onboard.
