Holt’s annual charity day raises £29,000 for GWT
One-hundred-and-forty guns descended on the royal Sandringham estate in August for the 13th annual Holt’s Auctioneers charity shoot. the day raised £35,000 in total with £29,000 (at the time of writing) set to go to the Gamekeepers’ Welfare trust (GWT).
the 35 teams of four guns took on five creatively designed simulated game drives across the estate. the winning team was Oakbank Game and conservation, who scored an impressive 433x500. A 20-bird flush pool shoot (won by Purdey & Son’s George Juer) and a gnat shoot (won by Yeung & co.) added further zest to the proceedings.
William Alldis, the Shotgun chef, prepared lunch, after which there was a presentation by Sir Johnny Scott, president of the GWT, and that was followed by an auction led by Nick Holt.
