McDonald’s is to help recruit and train 70,000 volunteers who will be involved in staging the London 2012 Olympics, it was announced today.

It is believed the fast food giant’s customer service expertise and strong high street presence means its 1,200 outlets will be helpful in recruiting the volunteers. They will be called “games makers”.

McDonald’s, which spends more than £30m annually on training its 80,000 workforce, becomes the “presenting partner” for the London 2012 volunteer programme.
