Hunting and shooting clubs join forces to help the people of Ukraine

Russia’s invasion of the Ukraine, has sadly led to thousands of deaths while towns and cities have been left in ruins. In addition over 10 million people have been displaced inside Ukraine and beyond.

In light of the desperate situation these families are going through, the strong country sports community both North and South felt the need to help in some way.

In response Fermanagh Harriers recently joined a group of hunt clubs, (Leitrim Harriers, Westmeath Hunt, East Antrim Hunt to name but a few), and shooting clubs, in donating money to help organise a shipment of aid to people in war torn Ukraine.

Gary McCartney, Director of Countryside Alliance Ireland said: ” It is pivotal that focus remains on the horrific reality of life faced daily by the Ukrainian people. Community groups up and the countryside, including a large number of hunts and shoots, have taken part in a number of successful fundraisers and aid shipments to ensure those suffering on the ground and elsewhere because of Russia’s invasion, get access to vital resources”.

Progress of the aid through Europe can be followed on Bawnboy Firearms FB page.
