Meet our ambassadors

Our Orienteering Foundation ambassadors provide a vital role in keeping in touch with clubs and individuals in their respective regions. 

All our trustees also act as ambassadors for their regions, and you can find out them on our Meet the Board page. Here you can find out about our other ambassadors. You can find contact details for all our board and ambassadors at Getting in Touch.

We are always intersted to hear from new potential ambassadors - for more information please see our Vacancies page.

Wilbert Hollinger

Wilbert Hollinger

Wilbert Hollinger - Northern Ireland

A retired schoolteacher, Wilbert has orienteered for some 50 years, from way back in the days of black and white maps and red biros. He was a founder member of the Northern Ireland Orienteering Association (NIOA) and is a past chairman. He is a member of Lagan Valley Orienteers (LVO) and has, over the years, competed widely throughout the UK and Ireland, and further afield. 

In addition to Foot O he competes in Trail O and in this discipline is a GB selector. He was controller for the JK Trail O at Ampleforth Abbey in 2016, and planner for Day 2 of the JK at Tyrella in 2011.

Wilbert has seen many changes in the sport over the years but is more than ever convinced that it offers something for everyone. With so many possibilities for outdoor recreation he is keen to ensure that all orienteering clubs maximise the opportunities for their development and are fully aware of how the Orienteering Foundation can assist.
