My story

[p]Northamptonshire County Archery Society are again shooting to raise money for charity. [/p][p]This years event is to be hosted by Wellingborough Open Archery Club and we have again chosen to raise money together by doing something that we all enjoy, shooting arrows.[/p][p]The event will be a "Dawn 'til Dusk" shoot starting at 05:30 and running through to 21:00. The archers involved will raise money through sponsorship by shooting sessions throughout the day. There will be 5 sessions shot throughout the day. Sessions 1 - 4 will be National Rounds and Session 5 will be a Warwick Round. For those who are not archers a National Round is a 6 Dozen round at 2 distances and a Warwick Round is a 4 Dozen Round at 2 Distances.[/p][p]This is where you, the donor, come in - by sponsoring your archery friend to raise as much as they can for the 3 chosen charities.[/p][p]This year we have chosen to split the monies raised between 3 county charities:[/p][p]Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance[/p][p]Northampton General Hospital - Gosset ward[/p][p]Kettering General Hospital - Breast Cancer Unit[/p][p]Why a target of £12,000?[/p][p]When contacting the charities to ask if we could fundraise for them Northampton General Hospital advised that they wished to raise funding for a special cot for babies with respiratory problems and that these cots cost £2,000 each - why fund one if we can fund two? [/p][p]This helped us to set the target at £12,000 because £4,000 for each charity would see 2 cots for the unit. When looking at what this might mean for the other chosen charities we were surprised to read that our local air ambulance service averages 6 rescue missions per day and each mission costs approximately £1,700 so we might help keep that air ambulance in the air for half a day with £4,000.[/p][p]We are grateful for all donations that we receive, but don't let the target affect your decision. If we are fortunate to be in a position where the target is reached we would still like you to donate as much as you can afford so that all 3 charities receive as much support as we can give them.[/p][p][br][/p][p]First a very special thanks to the staff and pupils at Sywell CEVA Primary School who have chosen our event to join in with their own school community event and will be doing a tough commando style obstacle event to add donations to our total raised! Good luck to everyone there.[/p][p]Archers gaining sponsorship (list will be updated accordingly):[/p][p][br][/p][p]Mark Allison[/p][p]Sandra Allison[/p][p]Mark Bennett[/p][p]Iain Cope[/p][p]Darren Gathercole [/p][p]Fraser Harley[/p][p]Pat Jones[/p][p]Hayden Ledwick[/p][p]Chris Leech[/p][p]Isaac Lunn[/p][p]Russell Lunn[/p][p]Caroline Malcolmson[/p][p]David Malcolmson [/p][p]John Marshall[/p][p]Shahram Montasser[/p][p]Nick Murphy [/p][p]Brendon Prigmore[/p][p]Martin Ross[/p][p]Helen Sharpe[/p][p]Jack Sharpe[/p][p]Paul Sharpe[/p][p]Rose Sharpe[/p][p]Neil Sims[/p][p]Thomas Sims[/p][p]Danny Thomas [/p][p]Lucy Thomas [/p][p]Noah Thomas[/p][p]Olivia Thomas [/p]
