Normanton Shooting Ground hosted a fundraising shoot on 20 February to generate funds that will go toward fighting complaints from local residents, restrictions from the local council and paying for legal advice.

Solware Ltd supported the event extremely well and put up an Armsan semi-auto shotgun, 1,000 Eley Hawk cartridges, a cartridge bag, plus a few extras. Carl Harlow of Solware also convinced Highland Outdoors to donate a Webley & Scotts shotgun as the High Gun prize.

Solware promotes Normanton Shooting Ground to its customers but the ground has recently faced a series of events that has almost seen the site close. However, the ground’s owners, Mick and Jason Marlow, have spent over £4,000 in legal fees to keep it open.

The fundraising competition offered over 70 different prizes, attracted 170 people and generated a further £4,000 to help keep the ground open and appeal the complaints.
