Three ‘fantastic’ prizes to be won in new-look Gun Draw

GWCT-Jack London -2017-081

YOUR chance of winning the ultimate prize in fieldsports is better than ever before.

The top prize remains the same which includes a day’s driven grouse shooting for one gun, a new pair of William Powell shotguns, a three-hour fitting session and 500 game cartridges, worth an eye-watering £25,000.

But, for the first time ever, there will also be second and third prizes up for grabs with half as many tickets available.

A William Powell tweed shooting suit worth more than £1100 is on offer for the runner-up, while the third prize is an embossed leather gunslip and cartridge bag costing £400.

“Whether you have a passion for grouse or are hoping to shoot a day’s grouse for the first time, this is a great chance to win some fantastic prizes,” said GWCT director of communications Andrew Gilruth.

“There are strictly 1,000 tickets for sale and when they are gone, they are gone!

“By taking part in the draw, you will also 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.

You will be helping us to tell a more balanced story about game management by funding new research to measure and publish the positive influence it has on our countryside.

GWCT would like to thank William Powell for its generosity in donating the prizes for the fourth successive year.

Tickets are £100 each and the draw will take place at Fordingbridge HQ on 19th December.
