The Annual Report of The Orienteering Foundation Charity for 2017 was published last month.
Most of the work of The Foundation involves small grants on a project-by-project basis to further the sport of orienteering in the UK, and these are discussed in the report.
The GB Senior Squad were extremely grateful to the Foundation for supporting the team by hosting an appeal to support World Champs participation. It was very generously supported by many people. The money raised was distributed to 15 of the 16 athletes who attended the 2017 Championships (Estonia).
We also raised, through MyDonate, £10,365 which was distributed to 15 athletes who were in the GB squad for the World Orienteering Cup competition.
The Orienteering Foundation has kindly agreed to a similar appeal in relation to this year's World Champs. This will launch next week.Continue reading...
