For the 17th year running, Robinson & Hall held a charity clay shoot and this year’s was in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
East Anglian Air Ambulance is a helicopter emergency medical service covering Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. Their crews are called to an average of four life threatening incidents a day. They do not receive regular direct government funding so the £10.2 million they need to raise this year comes directly from charitable donations.
Our annual clay shoot was held on 12th July at one of the UK’s largest clay shooting grounds, Sporting Targets in Riseley, Bedfordshire. 16 teams competed against each other, each determined to walk away with the prizes on offer for Top Team, Top Gun, Top Lady and Best Farmer. There was also a sweepstake to guess the total number of clays hit in the competition.
Following the shoot, a delicious buffet was served and winners were announced by Andrew Capel, Senior Partner and Head of Rural Property & Business at Robinson & Hall. A team representing The Three Compasses were crowned Top Team with 181/200 clays hit, Jim Munday and Andrew Buck shared the accolade of Top Gun with 37/40, Kate Coleman won Top Lady Gun with 27/40 and John Stanton won a cup for the most clays hit by a farmer with 33/40.

Andrew comments: “Well done to all winners. Our annual clay shoot is always a huge success and a great way to raise money for such a worthy cause. Thanks to all those who attended for their support”.
This year’s shoot raised over £1,500 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance, bringing the total raised since the first shoot to over £28,600.
