Trust employee on hand to help at the London 2012 Olympics

24 Jul 2012 14:51:39

A pharmacist from The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust will be rubbing shoulders with Olympians this summer. 

Gaby Lawson is using her annual leave to work as a volunteer for the Olympic sailing events in Weymouth.  

She is one of the 70,000 volunteers who are officially known as Games Makers at the London 2012 Olympic Games. She was selected from 240,000 people who applied. 

“I’m getting really excited now – it seems to have gone so quickly since I applied nearly two years ago,” she said. 

“It should be amazing and a once in a lifetime experience and I’m very proud to be able to help make a great Games.  

“I’m looking forward to being part of the atmosphere and part of the team,” she added. 

Gaby, who has been a pharmacist for 25 years and has worked at Rotherham Hospital for the past two and a half years, thinks the experience will also bring benefits to her work. 

“It will be fantastic to work in a different environment, and to pick up skills to do with sports.” 

A keen windsurfer herself, she was inspired to apply to be a Games Maker after she attended the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester.
