Archery Appeal Success!

archery1

Our very successful Archery Appeal has now closed. Well done and a huge thank you to all our sponsors and well wishers in this campaign.

Our aim was to raise a total of £2,000 to buy bows, arrows and other equipment, in order to allow us to add Archery to our ever-growing list of Outdoor Adventure Activities. We were successful in raising £1,676 from direct donations alone, and with a very generous 'in-kind' donation of archery equipment from Sean Maguire, the total was brought up to £2,056!

Archery is a great development activity for the groups that use Wiston Lodge. It teaches responsibility, self-discipline and confidence... and of course it's great fun too! Archery is accessible to all ability groups, and can even be done indoors in poor weather.

Well done to you all and our thanks on behalf of over 250 children and adults who have already used this equipment to enhance their Personal, Social and Emotional Development at Wiston Lodge.
