SHOOTING: The Roma Clay Target Association Club continues to raise valuable funds for the community through its successful annual charity shoot event.

In October, businesses were invited to put together teams of five people, with all fees going towards groups that serve the community.

This year, they managed to raise more than $3500 for the Lions Club of Roma.

Roma Clay Target Association Club vice-president Andrew Whyte said the club has a long and proud tradition of supporting the region.

"We were lucky enough to give the Lions Club a large cheque, which brings our total to $87,500 since 1982,” he said.

"It's a way of the club giving back to the community. It's been a part of the culture of the Roma Clay Target Association for a long time that we continue to make a difference.”

Since the annual charity shoot began in 1982, the club has donated to a range of community groups, including the Royal Flying Doctor Service, Queensland Cancer Funds, Jubilee Hall Roma, the Roma Youth Music Council, the Endeavour foundation, Queensland Ambulance Service and the Westhaven and Pinaroo aged care facilities in Roma.

There's no sign of slowing down for the club, Whyte highlighting the importance of teams getting together for next year's event.

"With the charity shoot happening again next year, we strongly encourage people to put forward their team of five to have some fun and raise money.”
