Seymour does it for charity
Seymour Field & Game held its first Charity Shoot in April at its grounds in Lambing Gully Rd.
The beneficiary was the Seymour Hospital and the aim was to try to raise $4000 for the purchase of two vital signs monitors for Seymour Health’s urgent care centre and acute ward. Vital signs are measurements of the body’s most basic functions. The four main vital signs routinely monitored by medical professionals are body temperature, pulse rate, respiration rate (breathing) and blood pressure.
“By the end of the day, the final tally was $4117.25, which was an outstanding result on our first attempt at a charity event,” Seymour Field & Game secretary Alison Coombs said.
Nearly 150 shooters turned up for a 100-target event, with half of all nominations going to the final tally, which was boosted by a raffle and some generous donations. “We achieved our goal, raising the money needed and having a great day of clay target shooting as well,” Alison said. “A big thank you to our generous sponsors, Rodwells Stock and Station agents from Shepparton, Hall’s Jewellers, Seymour for some beautiful raffle prizes, GB Corsivia, Bungle Boori (which donated the door prize), Coffee On The Go and Body Shop at Home.”
The Overall Handicap winner was Dean Free, who, with his added handicap, scored 105 out of 100.
