Within these last hours before #VolunteersWeek closes there's still time to say thanks!

Today is the Final Day of this year’s Volunteers’ Week

Thank You to all involved in supporting our sport of orienteering! Throughout the week British Orienteering has celebrated the ongoing support given within all clubs, and the impact it has on the delivery of orienteering across the UK.

Thank you to everyone who supports their orienteering club to put on so many events across the UK – you are amazing!

Thank you to all committee members, organisers, planners, mappers, controllers, IT, all entries, start times, download and results, the printing of maps, car parking stewards, tea-makers, putting out and collecting controls…and more!

British Orienteering highlighted just a few individuals from orienteering clubs around the UK with some of their contributions over the last 12 months by putting them in the ‘Thank You’ spotlight.

There is so much activity that goes on in all orienteering clubs across the UK, and all volunteers are at the heart and soul of our fantastic sport. In whatever way you show and give your support, British Orienteering wants to again say a huge “THANK YOU” to you.

With these last hours before Volunteers’ Week closes – there is still time to say thanks!
Let us now look back on another fantastic week and let’s say a huge thank you to all those incredible volunteers and celebrate volunteering in all its diversity. Share your photos of how you have celebrated during the week and include the hashtags... #VolunteersWeek #MonthofCommunity #Orienteering
