Celebrating ten years since London won the bid to host the Olympics

On Sunday 4 July, some members of Vision were invited to a special reception hosted by Dame Tessa Jowell. Tessa was in charge of London's successful bid to host the 2012 Olympics and was appointed Olympics Minister (in addition to her responsibilities as Culture Secretary), with full ministerial responsibility over the Olympics bid from 2006.

We mingled with VIPs and other ceremony volunteers from the Olympics and Paralympics and saw performances by the Pandemonium Drummers and the GamesMaker Choir. It was a great evening and brought back happy memories.
