THE SEARCH is on for unsung heroes from Tower Hamlets who are inspired to make a difference to their community by the 2012 Olympics and Paralympic Games - and they could win �5,000.
BT is running The Road to 2012 contest and is offering a top prize of �5,000 for the winner who will also have their photo taken by a renowned photographer and displayed in the National Portrait Gallery.
Duncan Ingram, BT's London regional director and 2012 director, said: "There are thousands of people across the UK working hard, often behind-the-scenes, to ensure the London 2012 Games will be a fantastic success.
"BT wants to hear the stories of anyone who is inspired by London 2012 and is helping to make sure the Games are a huge hit.
You may also want to watch:
"It could be the minibus driver taking future athletes to training, the construction workers making sure the venues are built on time or people learning a language to welcome and help visitors to the UK in 2012. No matter how big or small the role, BT would like to hear their story."
