March 2015 Recipients
Mathew Read lives in Feilding with his partner and young son. He received $2,000 towards his trip to Ohio, America where he will represent New Zealand at the World Long Range Target Shooting Championships. He has been selected for the NZ Palma Team and also as the captain of the NZ under 25 team.
Mathew has achieved a lot on a national and international level through his career in the sport. He does his own fundraising through events such as sausage sizzles as target shooting doesn’t receive a great deal of funding due to its low profile.
Working full time as well attending regular practices and competitive events demonstrates Mathew’s passion for the sport. He’s proud to wear the silver fern and represent New Zealand at the world championships.
