Foresters Friendly Society's performance partner Archery GB wins double gold in the European Grand Prix

Simon Terry, Larry Godfrey and Alan Wills - better known as the Men's Recurve Team - beat their Italian opponents while Alison Williamson twice fought back from behind to complete a 6-4 victory against her fellow veteran and former World Champion Natalia Valeeva of Italy in the women's recurve final.

"It's a fantastic day for GB archery, for the three lads, and for Alison - we're all really proud of all of them," said Archery GB Performance Director Sara Symington.  "They've all been shooting superbly all week, and it tells me they're all really focussed and up for the challenge, with the World Championships coming up in July, and all roads leading to London 2012 after that."

Foresters Friendly Society is the first commercial sponsor of Archery GB, providing support through 2012 and though to 2013.
