SHOOT­ING: The Roma Clay Tar­get As­so­ci­a­tion Club con­tin­ues to raise valu­able funds for the com­mu­nity through its suc­cess­ful an­nual char­ity shoot event.

In Oc­to­ber, busi­nesses were in­vited to put to­gether teams of five peo­ple, with all fees go­ing to­wards groups that serve the com­mu­nity.

This year, they man­aged to raise more than $3500 for the Lions Club of Roma.

Roma Clay Tar­get As­so­ci­a­tion Club vice-pres­i­dent An­drew Whyte said the club has a long and proud tra­di­tion of sup­port­ing the re­gion.

“We were lucky enough to give the Lions Club a large cheque, which brings our to­tal to $87,500 since 1982,” he said.

“It’s a way of the club giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity. It’s been a part of the cul­ture of the Roma Clay Tar­get As­so­ci­a­tion for a long time that we con­tinue to make a dif­fer­ence.”

Since the an­nual char­ity shoot be­gan in 1982, the club has do­nated to a range of com­mu­nity groups, in­clud­ing the Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Ser­vice, Queens­land Cancer Funds, Ju­bilee Hall Roma, the Roma Youth Mu­sic Coun­cil, the En­deav­our foun­da­tion, Queens­land Am­bu­lance Ser­vice and the Westhaven and Pi­na­roo aged care fa­cil­i­ties in Roma.

There’s no sign of slow­ing down for the club, Whyte high­light­ing the im­por­tance of teams get­ting to­gether for next year’s event.

“With the char­ity shoot hap­pen­ing again next year, we strongly en­cour­age peo­ple to put for­ward their team of five to have some fun and raise money.”
