Shooting with a star
Ian Coley, the Great British Olympic shooting coach will be on hand to coach enthusiasts at the Gloucestershire Crimestoppers Clay Pigeon Shooting event on Friday 1st June [26 April 2012].
The independent crime fighting charity is offering an opportunity for the business community and individuals to entertain clients or business contacts, whilst also supporting the Gloucestershire arm of Crimestoppers.
Crimestoppers run the anonymous 0800 555 111 phone number that you can call to pass on information about crime. Alternatively, people can pass information anonymously via the website www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
The half day event (12.30pm – 5pm) for teams of four, is being held at the Ian Coley Shooting School, near Andoversford, Cheltenham, one of the premier shooting establishments in the UK.
The programme will include a BBQ lunch, health and safety instruction, a practice and coaching session (with expert coaches including Ian Coley), and a fun team competition.
All guns, ear defenders, cartridges and clays will be provided, and the cost per team of four is £500.
All profits from the day will go to Gloucestershire Crimestoppers. Since the charity was launched in the County in 1995, there have been 14,900 actionable calls and nearly 1,200 people have been arrested and charged as a result.
Darren Stevens, Vice chairman of Gloucestershire Crimestoppers said:“Demand is expected to be high for this event and seven teams from the business community have already registered to enter. We would however be delighted to welcome many more, to what will be an enjoyable day raising funds for this excellent charity."
