Simulated game day raises £41,000

A simulated game day at Hatfield House, Hertfordshire, has raised £41,000 for the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust.

On Friday 22 May, 21 teams, including two teams from the USA, shot five flurries around the estate. The course included clays that simulated grouse, high pheasants, woodcock, snipe, ducks and rabbits.

The winners of the competition were a local team, and the members each won a magnum of Gosset champagne and a GWCT tumbler.
