Clay shooting event raises £8,000 for HCF

HCF is grateful to be receiving proceeds from the Three C’s Simulated Game Shoot which took place on Thursday 23 May 2019 in the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside at Ayot Shoot Lodge.
The day was generously organised by Malcolm King, Director of Eversleigh Investment & Property based in Hatfield and co-sponsored by a private donor. The two local businessmen wanted to organise an event to aid HCF and fellow charities ADD-vance and Prostate Cancer UK.

Eleven teams enjoyed the sunny day and competed in a range of shooting tests across the estate. Simulated game shooting is a version of clay pigeon shooting where clays follow the path of live game such as grouse, pheasant and partridge.

After an exhilarating morning guests gathered in a marquee where they were treated to a three-course meal before battling each other for auction lots to raise money for the three charities. Auction highlights included a week in a three bedroom villa in Mauritius, three days sailing on a yacht and a tour of Lords cricket ground.

HCF would like to thank everyone who worked so hard to make the event a success and for all those who participated and gave so generously.

HCF has received £8,000 from the event which will help HCF significantly to tackle need and deprivation in Hertfordshire.
