Shooting events raise massive £140,000 for charities

It takes the total raised so far from the event to £1.9 million.

The shoot, at the Auchterhouse Country Sports Club near Dundee, attracted 40 teams of shooters in the Amateur, Game Shot and Professional categories.

Non-shooters were entertained by a ‘Sunday Kitchen’ cookery demonstration with celebrity chefs Nick Nairn, Paul Rankin and Michael Smith, while comedian Fred MacAulay was on hand to taste their creations.

Teams taking part this year included RAF Leuchars, who scooped the title of Top Amateur Team.

The team, hosted by Air Commodore Gavin Parker, consisted of Wing Commander Neville Clayton, Flight Lieutenant Richard Heap and Major Jed Miller.

To help with the fundraising, RA F Leuchars kindly donated a VIP day at the Jubilee Airshow on September 15 to the auction, including the chance of a lifetime to take a trip in the Blades display aeroplanes.

Other trophy winners included Craneware (top Amateur Flush Pic3), Sabre Safety (top Game Shot Flush), Morphie Estates (top Game Shot team), Carnegie Base Services (top Flypast), James Keiller Estates (top Professional team Pic4) and Guns Unlimited (top Professional Flush).

The individual winners were Anne Gardner (Pic1), Tony Bancewicz (Pic2), top Amateur gun, Chris Dewbury, top Game Shot and Ian Mason, top Professional gun.
