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.
