British Orienteering is delighted to be supporting Volunteers' Week (1-7 June)

British Orienteering will be joining many organisations across the country for this year's Volunteers' Week, which starts today (1 June) and runs until 7 June.  We want to celebrate the difference volunteers make and thank you all for your time and energy you give to our sport every week. 

At British Orienteering, we would like to take this opportunity to say a big "THANK YOU" to all volunteers; committee members, coaches, planners, controllers, tea-makers, car-parking stewards, mappers.... ......the list goes on! 

You are the lifeblood of our sport.  Thank You!  

British Orienteering will be posting content on the British Orienteering website news pages and on Facebook and Twitter, please get involved by sharing, liking and commenting on our posts and help us to build momentum around our national campaign.  Keep a check on the British Orienteering website throughout the week!

We would love you to post your own thanks and volunteer features. For example, maybe you have a volunteer of the year in your club or someone who you would like to give a special mention of thanks to someone in your club or further afield. If you want to add this content to your club social media during this week please tag @britishorienteering and #volunteersweek.
