Our team of friendly and helpful volunteers played a vital role in ensuring the success of Lanarkshire's International Children's Games in 2011.
The Games committee would like to thank every one of those hundreds of dedicated volunteers who signed up and gave their time and effort to help out the thousands of visitors who came to Lanarkshire for the Children's Games.
Here are just a few of the comments from international visitors praising Lanarkshire's army of volunteers:
