Outstanding prize to scoop in raffle


THE Norfolk Big Five Shoot, a unique opportunity for all shooting enthusiasts, is up for grabs in a Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) raffle.

You can win an exceptional day’s shooting of pheasants and red-legged partridges for eight guns across five different private estates in north Norfolk.

These include The Kelling Estate courtesy of the Widdowson family, The Stody Estate courtesy of MacNicol Family, The Raynham Estate thanks to Viscount Raynham and Steve Marsh, The West Barsham Estate donated by the Soames family and The Holkham Estate courtesy of the Earl of Leicester, who will be hosting a shoot dinner at the Temple in Holkham Park.

Included is also overnight B&B accommodation for the eight guns at The Pheasant Hotel, Kelling.

By entering the draw, you will be supporting GWCT’s scientific research programmes for game and wildlife conservation.

The Trust aims to ensure a thriving countryside, rich in game and other wildlife and believe its research can go a long way to achieving this.

“The work we carry out is crucial in trying to save our numerous wildlife interests,” said GWCT regional organiser Lizzie Herring.

“These activities have never been under such sustained and varied attack, as they are now, and it is only by delivering the science/evidence, to the decision makers, they will listen and react.”

Tickets for the draw, which closes on March 14th, cost £250.

There are only a limited amount on sale and the aim is to raise £75,000. The day is planned for early November 2020. Enter online now:
