Leith Community Archers – The Team

The club achieved Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) status (SC045559) on March 22nd 2015 and began to run as an independent charity.  All of the team involved in running Leith Community Archers are all volunteers and most of them have been a part of Leith Community Archers(LCA) since its inception in 2013.

LCA was a successful result of a  community project across Scotland called Link Up in 2013.  Inspiring Leith, run by Inspiring Scotland organised recreational and sports activities for local communities in Scotland.  Bethany Christian Trust in Leith hosted the community showing of the film 'Brave' and the Archery taster sessions.

The main aims and objectives of the Club are to encourage the community to take part and share skills in Archery, as a recreation or sport.  LCA provide, organise and facilitate Archery as a recreational activity to benefit and improve the wellbeing of those who attend.  Anyone is welcome, LCA is inclusive and accessible and we encourage children, young people, people with disabilities or health issues.  We have welfare officers as part of the team to provide help and advice and to ensure safeguarding.

The LCA team consists of board members, volunteer instructors, welfare officers and regular attendees.

Leith Community Archers (SCIO) are registered with OSCR (Scottish Charities Register).  A copy of the LCA constitution can be found here.  Members can be voted into a board position at the AGM to lead the direction of the club.  We are part of Archery GB and Archery Scotland and our focus is on indoor archery using Recurve bows.

I first tried archery at school – coincidentally the school we now shoot in, the year it was built!  I found out about Leith Community Archers not long after it was formed and Kath, Amy and I came along for a family session. We were immediately hooked.
