Sights set on charity clay shoot

by Iain Mason

Published on 16th August 2018

The team here at Optimum are on target to help a mental health charity by sponsoring its annual clay shoot.

The event, which takes place at Barbury Shooting School on September 26, is in aid of TWIGS, the community garden project in Swindon, which supports people with mental health and addiction problems and also those with dementia.

We will be entering two teams as well as sponsoring the event and are inviting others to sign up.

Individuals and teams of four are welcome, and the cost is £120 per person. Bacon rolls, guns, cartridges, buffet lunch and a helping hand for any novices is all provided. The event runs from 9am to 2pm.

Richard Mathews, CEO at Optimum, said: “TWIGS does some great work in supporting people with mental health and addiction issues, through its community gardens scheme in Cheney Manor and we are delighted to sponsor this event.”

Chris Loveday, fundraiser with TWIGS, said: “We’re delighted that Optimum are able to sponsor this annual event. It’s now in its eighth year and generally raises about £6,000 for TWIGS.

“We are currently building the dementia programme we run, which now supports five people with dementia and more will be joining. The funds will help us to develop this as well as the other services we offer.”
