British Orienteering Awards 2019: The Club of the Year Announced

British Orienteering are pleased to announce the next winner in the Volunteer Awards for 2019.

Today we announce the winner of The Club of the Year.

This year’s winner is Forth Valley Orienteers (FVO).

Jen Leonard, President of FVO said:

“FVO is delighted to be recognised as Club of the Year for 2019! I would like to thank each and every one of our 224 club members for contributing to such a great year, whether that be volunteering at events, serving on the committee or achieving success in the forest.”

England Development Manager Peter Brooke, added:

“Congratulations to Forth Valley Orienteers for this well-deserved award. They have had a very strong 2019 with a great focus on their membership and providing numerous opportunities throughout the year. Indeed, Grace Molloy winning three medals at JWOC and a gold in the relay was an obviously proud moment for the club.”

“British Orienteering certainly appreciates and recognises all of the commitment, time and effort that goes into our sport from all our volunteers in clubs across the country. Especially in the current environment. It’s been pleasing to hear the positive comments and plans clubs have to get back out in the forests and parks once restrictions are lifted.”
