The princely sum of more than £80,000 has been raised in a fundraising clay pigeon shoot on the stunning grounds of the Eaton Estate, home to the Duke and Duchess of Westminster.

More than 150 guests gathered for The Prince’s Trust annual clay shoot to raise funds to help support the region’s unemployed young people.

Amongst the guests was Lauren Walsh, who is able to speak firsthand about how the Trust’s 12 week personal development course helped to turn her life around.

The event was sponsored by Textron Aviation and by car dealership Hunters Land Rover Chester, exclusive jewellers Boodles, gun makers Holland & Holland, manufacturer of sports equipment Promatic and bespoke tailors Harris & Howard.

Afterwards the 30 teams who took part decamped for a three course meal in the Wolf Room, amongst them the winning team, captained by Paul Dawes and main prize winners the Glorious 12th, captained by Mark Mills.

Over dinner, guests were treated to a money-can’t-buy auction with prizes including salmon fly fishing for three rods on the Aberdeenshire Dee and a day for four at Holland & Holland.
