Teams shoot for £2 million target

Have your say

Forty teams of shooting enthusiasts will take aim at cancer next month in a charity clay pigeon event in North Derbyshire.

The 13th annual Derbyshire charity clay shoot will take place at Chatsworth on Saturday, May 24, in an effort to raise £2million for charity.

Teams at the event will test their targeting skills on six simulated drives to raise money for four local charities.

They are Sheffield’s Cavendish Cancer Care, Sheffield Children’s Hospital, Arthritis Care and The Devonshire Educational Trust.

There will also be a donation to the Countryside Alliance.

Sally Eustace, for the event, said: “We still have four gun team spaces available and are also on the look out for any raffle prizes individuals or businesses can donate.

“We have some amazing ‘money can’t buy’ prizes too, including a driven grouse shoot at Bolton Abbey, a limited edition Artists Game Book, a two-day wine-tasting experience, and a lunch with the Duke & Duchess of Devonshire.”
