How to get more volunteers for your club
British Orienteering have supplied the following information for clubs seeking volunteer assistance.
There are an abundance of people who like volunteering and helping out. This may be because they have plenty of free time or are looking for a new interest. They are keen to support voluntary bodies such as sports clubs and associations even when they are not members and not actively involved in the sport. These people are keen to support their community and providing them with an opportunity to help at your club will not only satisfy their need but also be of real benefit to your club and its members.
