Richard is hosting a second charity clay pigeon shoot at the Holland & Holland Ground in Ruislip, on the edge of London on Thursday the 12th September to raise further bursary funds for the Waterford-Kamhlaba school in Swaziland. Lord Richard Attenborough is also a fellow trustee of the school and should be in attendance.
Last year's clay pigeon shoot raised £100,000, which translated into one and a half million in the Swaziland currency, and the charity is hoping to raise a similar amount this year. The cost of a team of four is £1000 and includes breakfast, endless shooting on a variety of stands, celebs, champagne reception, three course lunch, goody bag, 'entertainment' and an auction.
As before, every penny raised goes to the bursary fund. The costs of staging the shoot are covered by the generous sponsorship of HSBC Bank. guaranteeing that whatever we raise, or get donated, goes to the bursary fund. Richard says he's like a rottweiler when it comes to this, as so often money donated to charity gets waylaid into paying admin. NOT HERE!
