GWCT launches The Donside Big Four

The Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust has launched an exciting new fundraiser featuring four of the top sporting estates in the northeast of Scotland.

The Donside Big Four is a £150 ticket prize draw with one single prize – a magnificent day’s shooting for eight guns on four of Donside’s premier estates: Clova, Glenkindie, Tillypronie and Candacraig.

The draw is limited to just 250 tickets and the prize for eight guns also includes accommodation, dinner and drinks on the night prior, and breakfast on the day, at Castle Forbes by kind permission of Lord and Lady Forbes.

The prize, which has an expected bag of 200 birds, must be taken on 20 November 2020 or, should this not be possible due to government restrictions, on a similar date during the 2021 season.

The Trust is grateful to Hans Depre of Clova, Paul White of Glenkindie, Tillypronie Estate and Candacraig Estate for their generosity in providing the drives, and to RK Harrison for their sponsorship of the draw.

Entry is via www.gwct.org.uk/donside, with all proceeds in aid of the Trust’s research programme in Scotland. Entry closes on 9 October 2020.
