On Friday the 22nd we visited the spectacular Eastnor Castle in Herefordshire to serve up GB G&T’s to all those supporting the Prince’s Trust. The Prince’s Trust annual clay pigeon shoot raises more than £45,000 to support disadvantaged young people across the south west.
Twelve teams made up of 120 guns were invited to take part in the simulated game shoot across the estate, each drive replicating different species of game birds, and organised by the Royal Berkshire Shooting School.
Currently around 60,000 young people in the South West are unemployed. In the past three years the annual Clay Shoot at Eastnor Castle has raised nearly £118,500, which has been used by The Prince’s Trust to help young people in the south west gain the skills and confidence they need to get into work, training or education.
Jonathan Baltesz, chairman of the event, said: “We’re delighted with how much this event raised, which will go directly towards helping disadvantaged young people in the south west change their lives and find a job. This event has been very successful in recent years, thanks to the fantastic support of our sponsors and guests. We look forward to seeing what next year will bring!”
