What does it mean to be an Ambassador?

What does it mean to be an Ambassador?

Our very own Helen Sharpe of Wellingborough Open Archery Club, shares her first-year journey as an Archery GB Club Ambassador, on the Archery GB website.

“Archery is my sport, the sport of my family, the sport that I love. It, in my opinion, allows anyone of any age, ability or group to be together in the same environment and get together either socially or to have grassroots archers stand in a club environment against the country’s top archers. I cannot think of any other sport that creates this coming together of everyone within it.”
