Teams gathered at Chatsworth on 19th May for this year’s Derbyshire Charity Clay Shoot (DCCS).
The event has supported 25 charities since its inception in 2003, concentrating on mainly small, local charities in Derbyshire and neighbouring counties.
Around 48 teams of five took part in a morning shoot before lunch, which was followed by a live auction conducted by Sotheby’s UK Chairman Harry Dalmeny. Countryfile presenters Ellie Harrison and Adam Henson acted as masters of ceremonies.
The charities supported this year were: Ashgate Hospice; Support Dogs; the Devonshire Educational Trust; Bluebell Wood children’s hospice; the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust; and the Weston Park Cancer Charity.
The grand total raised was in excess of £400,000.
Sally Eustace, the event’s administrator, declared: ‘It was a perfect day, with wall to wall sunshine and warmth, and ended with a perfect result. Breaking through the £400k barrier means that the event has raised over £1 million for (mainly) local charities in the last three years alone.’
