Ainsworth Civils’ Finance Assistant, Sarah Wright, is not only good with numbers but also an ace shot. Sarah won team gold at the Shooting World Championships in Granada Spain during September 2014 and a fourth place in the Olympic Skeet event in her Commonwealth Games debut at Carnoustie during July/August 2014.
More recently, Sarah has been selected to represent Team GB in World Cup events held in Cyprus, San Marino and Azerbaijan. As well as continuous Team GB selection, Sarah’s next main focus is to represent England at the 2018 Commonwealth Games taking place on The Gold Coast of Australia.
In order to qualify for the World Championships and to be selected for the Olympic teams requires many hours of training with total dedication and focus. Apart from her extensive training, Sarah enters competitions locally, nationally, and internationally in order to increase her chances for selection.
Sarah has joined Ainsworth Civils on a four day a week basis, allowing her time to practice and pursue her ambitions of representing the GB women’s skeet team at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. As Sarah’s sport is an amateur activity there is limited funding available. To help Sarah with her world class ambitions, Ainsworth Civils have developed a sponsorship package providing funding for her training, travel, and accommodation costs.
Sinead Ainsworth Finance Director of Ainsworth Civils said: ‘The appointment of Sarah as Finance Assistant has been a great asset to our team, her natural on target accuracy has already proved to be invaluable. We are pleased to be in a position to help Sarah with her World Championship and Olympic aspirations.’
