Aiming for Tokyo 2020

You are all probably aware we have a Paralympian in our ranks in the shape of  our Chairman Fred Stevens.  What you may not know is we have another archer aiming to follow Fred’s path and represent TeamGB  at the Tokyo Paralympics in 2020, in the form of Steve Gill.

If you would like to help Steve on the road to Tokyo he is always appreciative of help arrow pulling and tea/coffee making down at the field.

And if anyone would like to help out with funding his endeavours you can make a donation here;
