Archery shoot with a difference to raise money for trip

A young animal lover has raised enough money for a once in a life time trip.

Abi Pearce, 17, who attends Colchester Royal Grammar School, organised an archery shoot with a difference with the Braintree Bowmen.

Abi, of Sandwich Close, Braintree, said: “I wanted to go on a trip abroad as lots of my friends had done something similar.

“I decided to do something with animals as I like them, and my animal skills are much better than my people skills."

In order to fundraise for her trip to Costa Rica to volunteer at a sloth sanctuary, the archery club that she has been a member of for two years, the Braintree Bowmen, organised a fundraising event which saw people shooting arrows at pretend animals.

In total, she raised about £300, despite the first day of the shoot having to be cancelled due to poor weather.

Costa Rica to work with sloths! You don't have to go all the way to South America to find evidence of sloth-types!
