What the event involved

Charity Clay Day Peter Waldron

Teams made up of four guns were invited to take part in this most prestigious Charity Clay Day, which was held across 5,000 acres of the Highclere Castle estate in Berkshire.

Each team was presented with 1,000 ‘birds’, all simulated drives of pheasants, partridges and other game quarry. There were five drives and chauffeured vehicles which ferried the teams around the estate and then back to the castle for lunch once shooting had concluded.

The day began at 8am with breakfast in the castle. Following the morning’s shooting, guests were invited to a champagne reception with entertainment, lunch in the castle’s library and to participate in a live auction with some fabulous ‘money-can’t-buy’ auction lots.

Where your money went

The event raised an incredible £293,000, with all funds being split between Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity and Marie Curie.

Thank you
