There is a call for more volunteers in Cornwall ahead of the Olympics.

A new scheme wants to get 400 people involved for the London games.

It is everything from doing the books for a local team to coaching youngsters.

Duchy Triathlete and Sport Makers rep Mark Lewarne:

"The legacy will actually last right the way through the county from grass roots level foundation sport right up to performance sport and hopefully, whether it's athletes or coaches, the Olympics will be a benchmark for more sporting success for Cornwall"

"From anyone who wants to do the administration, you know book-keeping at clubs, or doing the barbeque in the summer to actually going on and coaching and getting youngsters involved in sport. There's something for everyone and this scheme is brilliant because it really does get everyone involved"
