Shooter Wins Lincolnshire Sports Award

Imogen Leahy won the Young Sport Volunteer of the year award at Active Lincolnshire Sports Awards last week.Having made it onto the short list she beat off stiff competition from Tennis and Positive Futures. Imogen started her association with shooting through the Countryside Sport Days run by Lincolnshire Small-bore Rifle Association where she took part in the various activities run during the day.She returned as a leader and would spend the day taking groups of youngsters around the seven activities, making sure they got to each of the events and had fun; she has helped for the last four years turning up at the two events held every year. She arrives before the event starts and helps with the set up and assists with the break down at the end of the day. When new air rifle club, Yarborough Target Shooting Club, was formed, Imogen joined and quickly became involved in the Club, helping set up and takes down the range each night, assisting the club treasurer, collecting the subs and balancing the attendance list. Despite managing to do so much to support the Club, she still finds time to shoot herself both in club and county competitions – while at the same time supporting any new young members. Imogen has not only been an asset to the Yarborough Target Shooting Club, she also helps with the Brownies and the Local Disabled Riding School British Shooting would like to say a huge well done Imogen who massively deserves this recognition for her contribution to our fantastic sport.
