Another piece in the Glasgow Commonwealth Games jigsaw is being put in place as Car Hire Glasgow Airport look at the name of the volunteers for the Games.
All the volunteers who will be helping during the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow will be known as Clyde-siders. The title will be given to 15,000 people who had been chosen to help from a total of 50,811 people who had offered their services.
All successful applicants will begin to hear about their offers from Monday. The name was chosen by the pre-Games volunteers who conducted all of the interviews for the volunteers. The 11 day games begins on the 23rd July 2014, will see 4,500 athletes compete in 17 sports across 14 venues.
Among the first Clyde-siders appointed are Emma Blore, 23, from Dumfries and Galloway. Emma has been assigned to Commonwealth Games Association relations at the AthletesVillage. She said, “I live in a tiny village In Dumfries and Galloway called Mossdale and what I’m looking forward to most in Glasgow is the atmosphere. At London 2012, I volunteered as part of the athletes’ services team based in Glasgow looking after the men’s football teams and their delegations and everyone I met was really friendly. I want everyone who visits to feel right at home in Glasgow and hope to experience a great camaraderie with the other volunteers and staff.”
