Stawell Charity Driven Clay Shoot
August 26 2017
In aid of Somerset & Dorset Air Ambulance
We have great news for you all; a total of £950.00 was raised during the Stawell Charity Driven Clay Shoot.
We’ve raised £133 from the auction and £178 from the raffle. The raffle was so popular that we’ve ran out of tickets (last year we sold 147 tickets). This year we sold out the remainder of the book – 853 tickets. Takings from the food came to £233. Lots of thanks must go to the girls for all their great work.
All the equipment worked well, so thanks must go to Ian Harding who maintained it so well. Also, thanks to all those who helped with setting up and clearing up after the event.
We received 2,959 membership telephone enquiries and 518 requests for advice to our firearms helpline during December – just part of the work we do.
