Bill Hodder and Doug Tarlton-Weatherall from Lark Hill Village
in Nottingham came down to Wolverhampton for the day to teach the
39 Brunel Court residents how to shoot.
Ben Warrender, Activity Co-ordinator at Brunel Court, said that
no one at the scheme had tried archery for several years, but the
day was still a great success.
"All the residents who took part loved it," he said. "We even
had a few residents who just enjoyed sitting inside and watching
through the glass."
The event was part of The ExtraCare Charitable Trust's Olympic
Challenge, which aims to cover 25,000 miles (the circumference
of the globe) using various activities such as running and rowing,
before the start of the Olympic Games next year.
Each resident that attended earned miles, and bullseyes were
rewarded with some extra distance towards the goal.
