IOC thanks 2012 volunteers via video

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) joined the celebration of the International Volunteer Day on 5th December and posted a video to thank the volunteers for the London 2012 Olympic Games and the Innsbruck 2012 Youth Olympic Games.

The video carries the uplifting title Meet the Volunteers, champions of the Olympic Games and it features the Pandemonium Drummers - both as Industrial Revolution Drummers and as Athletes' Marshals.


In a slight slip-up, the video caption labels all volunteers "Games Makers", but as one video comment rightly points out, London Ambassadors and Ceremonies Volunteers feature in the video as well and can therefore consider themselves being thanked as well.

ABOUTPandemonium Drummers

The Pandemonium Drummers were originally put together by London 2012 Ceremonies for the Pandemonium segment of Danny Boyle's spectacular Olympic Opening Ceremony. Following the Ceremony, the volunteer drummers kept on performing at a variety of events.

Based on their extensive training, they performed at other Opening Ceremonies, including the UEFA Champions League Final 2013, the FA Cup Final 2014, and the Heineken Cup Final 2014, and at a variety of large and small festivals as well as sports and community events. The Pandemonium Drummers are a returning act in London's major parades, including the London New Years' Day Parade, St Patrick's Day Parade, and the Lord Mayor's Show, and they coined Cheer Drumming, supporting runners at major sports events across the capital and beyond. The Pandemonium Drummers have supported the Special Olympics, the Teenage Cancer Trust, and a wide range of other charities.

The Pandemonium Drummers are a constituted association with charitable aims, and are working on a non-profit basis as volunteers.
