A charity clay shoot at the West Kent Shooting School raised more than £2,800 for R.A.B.I and the Weald of Kent Hospice.
Eleven teams from across the South East got kitted up for the 70-bird, seven-stand shoot, including representatives from Chavereys, Savills, FGS Agri, CLA and Town and Country Funeral Directors. Coffee and bacon sandwiches on arrival helped prepare them for the cold conditions.
The event coincided with Great British Beef Week, organised by a group of female beef farmers called Ladies in Beef, raising awareness of the quality and versatility of assured British beef and giving the industry a much-needed boost.
Sally Field, R.A.B.I regional manager for the South East, said: “There were some challenging targets for all abilities at the Kent charity clay shoot. All shooters relished the opportunity to have a go – with variable degrees of success – as targets were thrown from the 100m tower.
“Afterwards, it was back to the warm clubhouse for a steak lunch. All the top placed guns received trophies and a bottle of sparkling wine care of Biddenden Vineyards. Gillian and the team from the West Kent Shooting School looked after us brilliantly throughout the day.”
