Shooting Gazette - - Shoot­ing gallery -

Wil­liam Downie wrote to us to say: “This cheer­ful group of clay shoot­ers, the Ma­leon Ma­raud­ers, were one of 26 teams at­tend­ing the re­cent 5th An­nual Bird­shot char­ity clay shoot at the Royal Berkshire Shoot­ing School (RBSS). The day was in aid of the Bird­shot Uveitis So­ci­ety and de­spite the driz­zle ev­ery­one had an en­joy­able and chal­leng­ing clay shoot fol­lowed by lunch and rounded off with an auc­tion of prom­ises with Lord Jef­fery Archer as the pre­sid­ing auc­tion­eer. The gen­eros­ity of the com­pet­ing teams and in­di­vid­ual do­na­tions at the auc­tion of prom­ises raised the im­pres­sive sum of £60,000 which will make a huge dif­fer­ence to the so­ci­ety and its fu­ture re­search pro­gramme.”

The good news for Wil­liam is that a bot­tle of bub­bly is on its way! For more in­for­ma­tion on the Bird­shot Uveitis So­ci­ety, visit bird­shot.org.uk.
