Charity Ballot at the Indoor Champs

Calling all Archers! At the NICSSA Robin Hood shoot in January, an almost new bow was offered for sale with all proceeds going to charity. The bow was not sold at that time. Now the idea of raising money has developed into a ballot with all proceeds going to Cancer Focus. This is being done in memory of Claire Merron who sadly passed away last year. Each entry costs £5 with a chance to win Claire’s bow. All details are on the link below and the draw will take place at the ANI Indoor Championships on Sunday 23rd February. Please note that the bow will not be posted and must be received on the day by the person buying the ballot or a representative. Thanks for your support, from Claire’s friends at NICSSA.
