High Hopes for Wildlife Charity Raffle

The prize for the GWCT's Berkshire High 4 raffle is a day's shoot on four of the county's most outstanding drivesThe UK's leading wildlife research charity is offering shooters in and around Berkshire the opportunity to win a top prize - and in the process raise funds for ground-breaking conservation science.

Organised by the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT), the winners of the Berkshire High 4 Raffle will spend Monday 22 October 2018 shooting on four of the county's most outstanding drives - Englefield, Kimbers, Rooksnest and Yattendon. The prize also includes a shoot lunch and elevenses.

The money raised will go towards the GWCT's conservation research which, for over 70 years, has been focused on developing practical methods of preserving the British countryside and wildlife for generations to come.

GWCT regional organiser Max Kendry said: "The opportunity to shoot on these four drives is something you simply can't purchase. The winners will have a genuinely unique and memorable day's shooting and everyone who takes part in the raffle will be contributing to a worthy cause."

Tickets for the raffle are £200 each and are strictly limited to 250 tickets. The draw will take place on Friday 6 April 2018. The single winning ticket will cover the prize of a day’s shooting for eight guns.
