Oswestry, United Kingdom, March 18, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- A Walford and North Shropshire College (WNSC) student who is completing a Foundation Degree in Sports Development and Coaching (awarded by Staffordshire University), will be asking members of the public to help him with one part of his qualification at this year’s Spring Lambing Day. Joe Palmer will be running an archery range at Spring Lambing Day with the assistance of Scouts and Bowbrook Archers.
Joe Palmer commented "As a degree student, I have been tasked to run an event. I thought I would use my Outdoor Activity skills base and run an archery range. I felt that the event needed a purpose, so it has three aims; inspire people to try something new and even take the sport up; raise money for Shrewsbury Scouts and Help for Heroes and make it happen without spending a penny, organising the event has required lots of borrowing, asking favours and good people."
Louise Gregory, Lecturer in Sports Development and Coaching, commented "I am delighted that Joe has chosen archery for Spring Lambing Day, with a dual aim of increasing participation levels within archery and helping to raise money for a worthy charity. Through taking part in such events it allows the students to gain valuable experience outside the classroom and link theory to practice. In addition based on the work of Joe and the pre-event feedback, which is really positive, the event is set to be a huge success."
