THE Game & Wildlife Trust (GWCT) is grateful to be receiving proceeds from the Wykeham Charity Clay Pigeon Shoot for the third year running.

The 2019 event, which is also aiding fellow charity Support Dogs, is taking place on Thursday May 23rd in the historic grounds of Wykeham Abbey, Scarborough with Langleys Solicitors as the headline sponsor.

Teams of four are invited to shoot six varied ‘drives’ across the Estate provided by EJ Churchill. There are a limited number of teams available which are £1,200 each, including breakfast, drinks, lunch and cartridges.

Money raised will help the GWCT 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.

“We hope you will join us for what will be a superb day of great shooting, people and food all in the aid of these two fantastically worthy causes,” said Sophie Dingwall, GWCT regional organiser.

Clay day shoots, in previous years, have raised a total of £67,730 for the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust, St Catherine’s Hospice and the Scarborough & Ryedale branch of the Mountain Rescue.
