Help raise funds for the club
Hello, I'm Dug, the Tayside Orienteers' club mascot. I'm helping to raise funds for the club this year. All you have to do is guess my birthday - 50p a go! Look out for me and the diary where you can pick a date at club events this year. You can enter as many times as you like and the lucky winner will be announced at our Christmas event in December. Good luck!
Inc. Gift Aid declaration form
The Scottish Orienteering Association is a charity, and one of the advantages of this is that the SOA can claim gift aid tax-relief on donations people make to the SOA. This includes the SOA part of your annual orienteering subs. The SOA has agreed to return this money to clubs for a minimum of three years, and potentially longer. Find out how to fill in a Gift Aid declaration on your annual membership fee.
