Earlier this year, ArcheryGB launched a partnership with easyfundraising, which gives clubs an easy way to raise funds.
Easyfundraising is in effect as cashback site, so when you shop online using the easyfundraising site, the retailer will donate money to our club. We will then use this money for the equipment and materials we need to run the club. We are hoping this will be a good way for us to raise funds to support the club.
We will be promoting this widely once we are able to get back to our venues with posters and adding more details to our bulletin.
2. Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first to find the site you want and start shopping. There is also a browser plugin you can download that will alert you if you can raise funds through a website you’re browsing.
3. After you’ve checked out, the retailer will make a donation to Northampton Archery Club at no extra cost to you whatsoever!
4. This isn’t just restricted to NAC members – anyone can register & raise money for the club, so tell your family too.
There are no catches or hidden charges and Northampton Archery Club will be really grateful for your donations.
On Sunday 8th March Northamptonshire County hosted an inter county match against Bedfordshire. Being an indoor event, the team selected for the event was small (14 archers), nevertheless three NAC archers were selected for this team.
Both Rebecca Stevens (Junior Ladies Recurve) and Ioannis Chrisinas (Senior Gents Recurve) were representing the County for the first time – congratulations, we hope this is the first of many matches. They were joined by Susan Corless (Senior Ladies Compound).
The overall result of the match was 5,756 points to Bedfordshire and 5,878 to Northamptonshire – making us the winners – congratulations to the whole team!
