You may have noticed a recent piece in CompassSport looking for a fundraising officer for JROS (Junior Regional Orienteering Squads). Unfortunately no one has come forward for this post and we are therefore looking to see if the regions can help us to fill it.
It is felt that the position does not need to be fulfilled by a committed orienteer but might also be suitable for a parent of a junior orienteer or a person good at encouraging others to give donations.
The new fundraising officer will be crucial in helping to keep costs downs for junior athletes, particularly as we are now running five camps each year.
The new officer would coordinate and submit grant applications as well as looking at alternative fundraising possibilities. They would be helped by the JROS Exec committee as well as camp managers.
The role is an unpaid voluntary position but one which will be vital in keeping costs down so that JROS can carry on with existing camps and subsidies for those selected.
