Jonathan Bates Disabled Shooting GB
My name is Jonathan Bates and I had a motorbike accident on the 18/2/2015 which has left me paralized from my chest down. I am in the DISABLED SHOOTING TALENT AND DEVELOPMENT NATIONAL SQUAD TEAM GREAT BRITAIN. Unfortunately as a result of the teams performance in the Paralympics in Rio 2016 the funding has been drastically cut. I was one of only three people picked out of over one hundred applicants who competed in a competition @ Stoke Mandeville Stadium in April 2016. I have to pay for my own transport, hotel & food & for the shooting itself I would like my own rifle, and I need to wear Shooting related clothing such as a shooting jacket taylor made for me, a sling that goes around my arm and fixes to the rifle to provide support, a visor with eye cover, a shooting glove, as well as other shooting related accessories. Any amount that you are willing to donate will be gratefully received. Thankyou Jonathan.
