A spectacular sporting clay pigeon shoot in the Borders has raised over £100,000 in aid of 3 charities – My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, the QME care Dementia Unit Kelso and Prostate Scotland.
The event – organised by Eskdale Shooting Services – took place at the Duke of Northumberland’s Burncastle Estate and attracted sporting shooters from throughout the UK and overseas.
A total of 26 teams took to the field. The clay shoot event was run by Richard Clarke’s Six Mile Bottom shoot.
The event was a team flush over 6 stands. As one participant commented: “It was wonderful to be part of a great community and help such good causes. Everyone has been so generous, and the day was full of good camaraderie and humour as you would expect.”
Northumberland Estates also provided over £10,000 worth of prizes to the event.
