At Easter 2017 the South East Orienteering Association (SEOA) held a very successful JK festival of orienteering at Brunel University (Sprint), Ambersham (middle), St Leonards and Holmbush (long), and Pippingford Park (relays). Being in the south and easily accessible to many orienteers helped boost entry numbers, and the event made a larger profit than budgeted. SEOA have decided to make a very generous donation from the surplus to the Orienteering Foundation.
Neil Cameron, chairman of the Orienteering Foundation, commented:
I am delighted SEOA have chosen to make this donation. It makes a very real difference to our ability to help fund projects that meet the objectives of the Orienteering Foundation.
We would also welcome any other clubs or organisations who choose to follow SEOA's example, and donate surplus profits from events to the Orienteering Foundation.
