We are delighted to report that MDOC members have decided to donate their volunteer entry fee refunds from the Lakes 5 Day to the Orienteering Foundation

Manchester and District Orienteering Club (MDOC) offered entry fee refunds to members who helped at the 2018 Lakes 5 Days event, and about half the volunteers in MDOC chose to donate to the Orienteering Foundation rather than receive their refund.  This has raised over £500 in donations for the Orienteering Foundation.

Neil Cameron, chair of the Orienteering Foundation said:

I would like to thank the many members of MDOC who donated monies they would have received for volunteering at the Lakes 5-days 2018: a total of £576 which shows how quickly donations from a number of people can generate a significant amount that can be used to support deserving athletes or projects.

You can read more about the sorts of projects this money goes towards at Projects Funded.
