Oxfordshire clay pigeon shoot to raise funds for wildlife charity

ClayshootingThe Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) is to hold a fundraising Clay Pigeon Shoot in Oxfordshire this April to raise money for its groundbreaking scientific research.

The annual event will be held at the Kingston House Estate, Kingston Blount on Wednesday 26th April from 2pm. Competing teams of four will shoot three 100 bird flushes and one high bird flush. There will be trophies for the best estate/shoot team and best corporate team.

The shoot is in aid of the GWCT, which for over seventy years has been pioneering conservation research to preserve the British countryside and wildlife. The event is open to all - you will not have to be a GWCT member to take part!

The entry fee is £380 for a team of four guns. All entrants must hold a current shotgun certificate and will be expected to provide their own cartridges, though 12g and 20g cartridges will be available to buy on the day. Refreshments will be available to purchase on the day.
