I have just received your letter in the post and would like to say a massive thank you to everyone at the Foundation for the generous grant! It will help a lot to contribute towards the Junior World Orienteering Championships in July, and I can now focus on my final preparations without financial worries etc! I will of course produce a report about my experience at the competition for you, and I really can’t wait for it!
I have just returned from a training camp at the weekend and am now in my final phase of training.
Thank you so so much,

Thank you so much for your financial support for my forthcoming trip to compete in the Junior World Champs in Rauland, Norway. Without your help it would have been impossible to get there and to take part in the prior Training camp in the North Lakes this week. I really have appreciated everyone’s contribution in helping me reach my target. I have now 5 more weeks left to prepare for the Junior World Championships. On Saturday I will fly out to Norway to participate in training camp in Scandinavia, where I will compete in a middle distance race in Halden followed by 5 days in Rauland accustoming myself with the Junior World Champs terrain. From here we will travel to Finland to take part in Jukola where I will run for Edinburgh University in Orienteerings biggest relay. Following this I will spend a few days training with my Swedish club in Stockholm before coming back to the Lakes to begin my final preparations at home.
