NATASHA and Graham Brown have made a number of sponsorship donations to local groups and individuals on behalf of the Cutting Crew Hair Salon in Wool and the Purbeck Shooting School in Dorset.
On behalf of Purbeck Shooting School, Graham Brown has donated £600 to Wool Youth Club to help fund the ongoing running expenses of the club, which provides a recreational and educational outlet for the young people of Wool and meets twice a week.
Ali Fowler, youth leader at Wool Youth Club, said: “Lately, we have been struggling financially. With this very kind donation we will be able to pay our rent and keep the club running for the benefit of its members.”
During a visit to the youth club, Graham Brown added: “We have a young family so know how important it is for them to have somewhere to go.
“It is fantastic to see children of all ages playing and working on computers, playing pool and a group of them on a mat playing games on a gaming station.”
Meanwhile, Natasha Brown, owner of The Cutting Crew Hair Salon in Wool, has provided the local school’s football team, St Mary’s and St Joseph’s Primary School, with a new football strip to enable the school to participate against other local schools in the area.
“It’s a great boost for the young players in the team to represent the school with the support of a local business,” said head teacher Helen Brown.
More recently, Graham Brown presented a cheque for £250 to Bere Regis Explorer Scout Unit member Mia Brown to help fund a forthcoming charitable expedition to Nepal, where she will carry out a project in a small village in the Khumbu region of the Himalayas before trekking to Everest base camp.
A donation of £500 has also been made by Purbeck Shooting School to the Parish of East Stoke to support the rebuilding of the village hall. On behalf of the fundraising committee, Ady Pitman thanked the Purbeck Shooting School for a very welcome and timely donation towards this long term project to raise more than £150,000.
Qualified and affiliated to the Clay Pigeon Shooting Association, Purbeck Shooting School is a previous winner of the title Shooting Ground of the Year, and regularly hosts corporate shooting events, charity fundraising events and competitions throughout the year.
Established in 1995, Purbeck Shooting School has grown to be one of the finest sporting clay facilities in the UK with some outstanding topography and mixed vegetation. The ground lends itself to naturalistic targets with a balance of difficulty to suit the beginner or the most accomplished clay target shooter.
