Volunteering in Cornwall has jumped by almost a half, thanks to the Olympics.

Bosses reckon London 2012 has made more people think about what they would like to do with their life.

The Duchy already has the highest rate of volunteering in Britain.

Andy Brelsford heads up Volunteer Cornwall: "There are things that you can do through volunteering which will fulfil ambitions that have been unfulfilled in your life up to now, or help you embark on a new chapter in your life whether that's getting a new job or making new friends and you can do it on your doorstep.

"Once people have found a volunteering placement we try to encourage people not to just think 'Well that's it now I'm volunteering somewhere and that's the end of it' but actually to think about progression, like you would in a job. Where do I want to go next? So, we want people to look at volunteering as a part of their own personal development."
