St John's Church, Greenhill will host an ‘On Your Marks’ event on Wednesday 8 June (7pm) to prepare parishes across Dorset and Wiltshire for the 2012 Games.

Golden Opportunity

The Organising Committee with the Bishop of Sherborne, Dr Graham Kings

Representatives of international charity More Than Gold will inform churches and local people on ways to get involved in the celebrations.

Topics will include the latest news on the Games and More Than Gold, the Torch Relay, Community Festivals, and running sports clubs and events.

The event forms part of More Than Gold’s national tour. Parishes are being asked to register their interest at www.morethangold.org.uk/onyourmarks.

Refresh 2012 Co-ordinator Anni Douglas said today: “This is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It’s not just about the Games themselves; it’s about serving our communities, giving them a great time, and creating a legacy of sports and other activities.”

She added, “So often, we hear from young people that they have nothing to do. This could be part of the answer!”
