A rainy April 2nd 2019 saw the fourth annual charity shoot arranged by The Pointers at Eriswell Lodge Shooting Ground, Suffolk.
All money raised this year will be donated to the Disabled Shooters Group, an organisation dedicated to developing opportunities for disabled shooting and through working with the national bodies in clay shooting have ensured there is categories for disabled shooters at national and international competitions.
The team at the DSG arrange shoots around the country for its members and introduces new people to clay shooting ensuring that the sport is all-inclusive.
217 shooters attended to head out around the 100-target sporting course, with something for everyone despite the weather it was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
The special addition for the shoot saw one stand being shot from a seated position, to give all competitors an insight into how it would feel to shoot from a similar position to that of a wheelchair user. Shooters also donated 82 raffle prizes, which helped raise the funds which was greatly appreciated by the organisers.
The high gun prizes saw shooters receive bags of dog food, which was kindly donated by Marsdens Feed so thank you to Duncan and Derek at the company for your help with this.
The triumphant team this year were the ‘Norfolk No Hopers’ who managed to hit a total of 445 of the 500 possible. The lowest scoring team (Charlies Reprobates) took home a slab of cartridges, in order to help them brush up for next year’s shoot!
The grand total raised was a whopping £4217.50, which is all being donated to the DSG in order to help them continue their worthy initiative.
