NHS staff hit the bullseye with free archery taster sessions offer

by Henry James (June 2021)

BURSCOUGH Archers’ offer of free taster sessions (normally £10 per person) as a thank-you to all NHS staff in the area have proved very popular.

More than 15 NHS staff have currently taken up the offer including a team of five paediatric diabetes nurses with their IT manager, all from Ormskirk Hospital.

They joined a group of coaches and volunteers from the club to experience archery first hand in a partly team-building and partly “experience something new together” exercise.

They had previously hardly shot an arrow between them but that didn’t get in the way of some excellent shooting.

They were shooting three arrows at a time and the first ‘three golds’ came up just 20 minutes into shooting.

The offer is still open to Southport and Ormskirk NHS staff but the offer is numbers-limited.
