To the committees of:-

The Powys Archery Association

 

I just wanted to write to you to thank you and the members of Radnor Foresters for your very generous donation towards the costs associated in my representing GB at the Junior Worlds in the USA and hopefully Wales at the Junior Commonwealth Games in Samoa.

Whilst both of these achievements are obviously a great honour, they do come at considerable expense as I need a complete second set of equipment to cover the possibility of equipment failure whilst competing. Then there is the additional expense of attending extra training sessions, preparation tournaments and the like including accommodation, entry fees, fuel costs etc as well as needing to continue to attend more tournaments to gain selection scores to hopefully maintain my GB team position. Finally although the hosts Samoa are covering the cost of accommodation etc should I be confirmed a place at the Junior Commonwealth Games in September, Sport Wales is offering no funding at all to athletes who go and represent Wales at the event. The result is that the travel costs to each athlete will be in the region of £2000.

As you can see any support I receive is greatly needed and very much appreciated and your generous support will go a long way to helping to cover some of the expenses I have mentioned.

 

Thanks very much again, I will forward some photos of the event and let you know how I get on afterwards.

 

Yours Sincerely

 

Ryan Pinder
