Over the years JROS and the individual Regional Squads have benefited from the support of many parents, friends, suppliers and organisations.
As a measure of appreciation, the logos below illustrate some of the organisations that have helped us.
It is not an exhaustive list and will be added to as time goes by but we hope that by listing these people we can say a small ‘thank-you’ for all their support and hope for their continuing support in the years to come.
An Anonymous donor
JROS would like to record its thanks for the substantial support provided over the years by a benefactor who wishes to remain anonymous.
Simon Greenwood Trust
Simon Greenwood has, in many capacities, been a long time supporter of orienteering and JROS would like to extend its thanks to the Simon Greenwood Trust which has generously provided financial support to JROS.
Parents and Friends
An increasing number of parents of juniors attending our camps, and ‘friends of JROS’, are providing us with financial support in order to continue our work for the juniors. We are very grateful for all your support!
In particular we would like to thank those parents of juniors to Lagganlia 2020 who generously donated some of their deposit to JROS when the camp had to be cancelled.
The Orienteering Foundation
The Orienteering Foundation is an independent charity devoted to helping Orienteers and Orienteering. The objectives are to make grants to encourage the enhancement of events and alleviate hardship by supporting groups and individuals.
The Orienteering Foundation has provided grant funding to JROS since 2013. This has supported both summer training camps and the Coaching Courses organised by JROS.
In 2020 it also helped to manage the donations made by competitors to the cancelled BOC 2020 and provided these donations to JROS.
We are grateful for all the support provided by the Orienteering Foundation.
Visit The Orienteering Foundation website, where you can apply for a grant or make a donation.
Athlete Support Group
The Athlete Support Group provides grants to individuals and groups who have identified specific areas in their technical and competitive orienteering as a focus for improvement. The Athlete Support Group has provided grant funding to JROS in 2014 and 2016.
