Foresters Friendly Society update

As official sponsors of Archery GB, Foresters Friendly Society ran a competition for 12 members to spend a day at the National Sports Centre at Lilleshall to try their hand at Archery, alongside some of the best archers in the world.

During the day they had the opportunity to see some of the Elite Archers such as Amy Oliver, Sean Evans, Andrew Randall and Becky Martin shooting, who were all putting in the hours to prepare for the 2012 selections.

Amy joined the Foresters competition winners for lunch with Olympic Coach Lloyd Brown which gave a great opportunity to ask questions of the team before they were taught the techniques of using a bow and arrow. Tim Hazell, Paralympic Coach was also on hand to coach some of the lucky Foresters members!

Neil Armitage, Marketing Director at Foresters commented, “This taster day provided members a terrific opportunity to try out the sport first hand.  Teaming up with Archery GB is a great partnership for Foresters given our brand and its historic links to the master archers Robin Hood and Little John!"
