Local archers aim high for charity

24 May 2012 10:36:00

 £350 has been raised for charity thanks to a local archery club. 

Pine Park Archers, based near to Sherwood Forest, have raised the money for Rotherham Hospital Charity through an ‘open shoot’ day at their club. 

The money will go to the stroke unit at Rotherham Hospital, part of The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust (TRFT), where Gary Swift, a member of the archery club, recently spent time following his wife Diane’s stroke in 2010.  

The open shoot welcomed archers from all over the UK and almost 150 people took part in the event in order to help raise the cash. 

The stroke unit at TRFT is hoping to use money raised via Rotherham Hospital Charity to refurbish a relative’s room. 

Tracy Williams, Charity Development Officer at TRFT, commented: “We always like to go the extra mile for our patients and support from local people for Rotherham Hospital Charity means that we can provide items to enhance patients’ experiences. These are often items that the NHS cannot afford.”
