Many cadets who enjoy shooting continue the sport as they progress through their early teens / university / start of independent life. However, we all know that other essential priorities make demands on meagre finances, so participation in shooting might have to be paused in order to keep the bank manager happy! Often, a short break leads to a longer break…
Just think of all those savings you have made by not being able to go shopping , get your hair cut or nails done, please can you look at helping out those new to the sport.
Donations are good - but anything else might be useful - I’ve managed to persuade someone to donate a rifle to them, & it looks like there are offers of labour / materials for this new project.
Please dig deep in your pockets! If not, please donate what you can. These young people are very much the future of the sport.
It’s probably the best “integrated” approach I’ve seen for donkey’s years to get new shooters onto the bottom of the experience “ladder.” For many, cost of accommodation at Bisley is too expensive (even a tent at the Imperial Meeting can be a large budget item - & no dedicated clubhouse to use). As such, their clubhouse project will be an invaluable “anchor” point for new people. Even a £5 donation would be a boost to their funding - give up a posh coffee for a day!
