Many thanks to everyone who took part in the inaugural Clay Shoot on 12 May at Cowdray House.

We raised £45,000, which is a fantastic amount for a first event.

Thanks for the support from our principal sponsors – Arkle Associates, Cantor Fitzgerald and Workpl@ce and to all of our many donors who helped to make the day such a huge success.

Cowdray House was the most incredible venue for both the competitions in the morning and the socialising in the afternoon, Darron Carver and his team created a fun yet competitive atmosphere for the Shooting and the wonderful food and service from Jacaranda made it a gastronomic success too.

Thanks also to Nyetimber, Co-ordination Catering Hire and This Floral Life for their significant donations.
