Charity Clay Day

Sharpshooters Raise £900 for Parkinsons UK

On 29th September, thirty aspiring marksmen and women from a variety of local businesses, blasted off a bucket full of cartridges to raise money for a local charity.

In doing so our charity clay pigeon shoot at the Hazel Bank Shooting Range, Knaresborough, raised over £900 for the Harrogate and District Branch of Parkinson’s UK.

Under the watchful eyes of the expert instructors from the Knaresborough and District Gun Club, six teams of shooters competed across three disciplines of clay pigeon shooting to find the top team followed by a rapid fire shoot off to find the Top Gun,​ ​Alex Tutt, MD of Retail Systems Consultancy

“The way the gun club had organised the morning was perfect”, said organiser Dave Calvert. “It provided a variety of challenges and instruction that brought the best out in everyone, from the raw novices to the one or two experienced guns. Also, the serious yet relaxed atmosphere enabled the shooters to safely mix and mingle with their fellow team members, make new friendships, renew old ones and meet some great people from a diversity of business backgrounds.”

“It was a great example of Rotary in action”, said Brigantes member Charlotte Gale. “Good friends doing great things together.”
