This is a rare chance to help visually impaired/blind people enjoy a target shooting session.
As a volunteer helper, you will be giving members an opportunity to achieve a high level of accuracy by setting up equipment, loading guns, directing the shooter, scoring and finally, putting the equipment away. This lively and fun group (which meets every Monday from 1.30-4.15pm at Deanshanger Community Centre) is one of the few groups in the country (and the only one in Northants!) offering this service to visually impaired/blind people.
Intrigued? Want to find out more about this unusual opportunity? Contact us for more details. You can also watch a short film about volunteering for this group on You Tube by searching for 'Blind Shooters'.
The tasks each week will include:
1) Setting up equipment
2) Loading guns
3) Directing the shooter
5) Put away equipment
