Local club supports Victim Services Huron Perth

A local club has made a generous donation to Victim Services Huron Perth.

The Claybird Gun Club in Exeter recently hosted its Charity Fun Competition on June 23.

Local shooters competed in four categories: Skeet, Trap, Rifle, and Hand Gun. Twenty-three shooters participated in the event raising $1,265 for Victim Services Huron Perth.

The funds will go towards Victim Services Huron Perth's programs and initiatives that support survivors of tragic circumstances in the area, as well as the support staff who work with the survivors.

This includes transportation to the sexual assault centre, supporting families with basic needs, providing hot beverages and snacks at the scene of tragic incidents, as well as comfort kits for victims.

The funds are also used for after-hours support and extensive volunteer training specifically to ensure self-preservation while responding to a multitude of stressful situations.

“It’s always a great day to be welcomed out to the Claybird Gun Club to not only watch the competition but also to be shown the safety features and precautions taken to ensure the sport is enjoyed safely by all,” said Victim Services Executive Director, Deborah Logue. “Victim Services greatly appreciates all the effort and organization it takes to run such a successful event! Special thanks to President Doug Moore and all the club members who support with volunteering their time to score, clean up, and set up, on top of participating in the event.”
