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.
