The Archery Foundation has taken the difficult decision to close the charity as of
31 March 2022.
The trustees took the decision, which was endorsed, by colleagues and supporters at the 2022 Annual General Meeting. As per the Foundation’s Articles of Association the net assets and financial obligations will be transferred to The Fletchers Trust, an organisation with similar objectives and criteria as the Foundation as per the requirements of the Articles.
The Fletchers Trust was set up in 1967 to make funds available donated by the Livery towards Archery and in particular those archers who have disabilities and organisations, which support events to which disabled archers, can attend.
The trustees wish to take this opportunity to thank the Foundation’s Patrons Mel Clarke PLY and Larry Godfrey OLY for their support and also to all those individuals and clubs who have donated to the Foundation. Further thanks to all former trustees, ambassadors, supporters and Archery GB, for their commitment to the ideals and objects of the Archery Foundation. There have been many successes across the archery community, and the Foundation is proud to have made a difference in some small way to those who have experienced the joy of our sport as a result of grants.
