Welcome to the Archery Foundation, a registered charity with the express intent of supporting the development and reach of the sport of Archery within the community contexts and in particular:- areas where there is significant social or economic deprivation, areas where there might normally be difficulty in accessing the sport and under-represented groups within the sport’s demographics and if you would like to financially support the work of the Charity you can do so below by contacting the secretary and making a donation. If you would like to help the Foundation ‘Reach Beyond the Target’ please see ‘Can you help?’ for details of how.
Important – Donations and Virgin MoneyGiving
The Archery Foundation have benefitted from the facilities provided by Virgin MoneyGiving (“VMG”) to ensure donations made can benefit from Gift Aid.

The Trustees of The Archery Foundation are appreciative of VMG’s support and operations to get the best possible result from donations made, and thank all those who have used VMG to donate, particularly those who have been making regular donations via the system.
The Trustees are investigating alternative methods of accepting donations and collecting Gift Aid, and the information will be updated in the future.

Dave Harrison – Trustee
David Harrison Trustee 5th August 1952 – 3rd January 2022
It is with a heavy heart that the Trustees must announce the death on 3rd January of David Harrison, who passed away suddenly in his sleep.
Dave joined the Foundation as a Trustee in May 2020, having been a supporter of the Foundation prior from its inception. Immediately Dave brought his enthusiasm, guidance and expertise to the Foundation, having served as a Trustee on other charitable projects.
Aside from the Foundation, Dave having taken up archery at the age of 20 in 1972, embraced every aspect of the sport, as an archer, a coach, and a National Judge, volunteering at many national and international events hosted by the National Governing Body GNAS / Archery GB, becoming in 2010 Chairman of the Board of Directors of GNAS.
The sport has lost a very special archer in the truest sense of the word, his death will be mourned by all who knew him and shared his humour and friendship.
The Trustees, Patrons and members of the Foundation that we extend our deepest sympathy to Dave’s family of whom he spoke with such love and pride, to Dot, their children and grandchildren.
Dave, the world is a sadder place today by your passing.
