The external funding for the GB Orienteering Team has largely disappeared this year, so the GB Team going to the World Orienteering Championships in Estonia at the end of the month needs help from the orienteering membership. 

The team has set up a 'My Donate' page. Money donated goes to the Orienteering Foundation, which is a well-established charity. It has agreed to pass on the money raised through this page to help meet the expenses of the team and hence reduce the amount the team members have to pay themselves. Money donated can attract gift aid, can be anonymous, can carry an encouraging message, and in addition it will be accounted for in end of year accounts so donors can get good feedback

Today's sprint event, the third in the series (out of five), was held in rather blustery conditions but with little of the promised rain to contend with. The Scale Hall and Salt Ayre map was extended to the neighbouring Grosvenor Park estate for this event which gave a little extra variety for series regulars. Results including RouteGadget may be accessed via the Results page. Congratulations to Finlay Johnson for his overall win.
