Phil Roberts has been in touch to say “its not every day a Wrexham lad gets a letter from the Prime Minister!”
Phil received the letter because he was a “GamesMaker” at the London 2012 Olympics. He explained ” I had the role of handing out uniform to thousands of people. While I was down there I experienced the atmosphere of the greatest games in recent times and also met some incredible people, which included Danny Boyle, the director of the opening ceremony.”
“It was an experience that may never happen again and to receive a letter off the PM has really made it all worth while.”
Last week we wrote about a gamesmaker – Pam Rigby – who works locally at Yale as a Youth Co-ordinator.
