Clay pigeon shoot raises funds for Blackburn good cause

An annual event hosted by regional law firm Napthens has raised almost £7,000 for a local charity.

The clay pigeon shoot, held recently at the Coniston Hotel and shooting ground at Skipton, North Yorkshire, featured nine Blackburn with Darwen businesses taking part to raise funds for Blackburn Youth Zone.

Sponsored by Napthens solicitors, with specialist lender Together, accountants RSM and Westholme School, the day featured shooting in the countryside followed by a lunch, prizes and a raffle.

In total, more than £6,800 was raised for the youth zone, a charity which works to provide opportunities for young people, helping them develop a passion for something which positively changes their outlook and attitude.

The good cause offers activities from sports to arts enabling young people to channel their energy positively. Napthens has organised the charity clay pigeon shoot for a number of years, and the event is now a significant one on the charity’s calendar.

Oliver McCann, partner and head of the law firm’s East Lancashire office, said: “Blackburn Youth Zone is a cause close to many of us in Napthens’ East Lancashire office and we were delighted to once again support the clay pigeon shoot.

“It’s always a popular and entertaining day and this year was no different. It wouldn’t have been possible, though, without those businesses which took part and we’d like to thank everyone for their support which helped to raise this fantastic sum.”

In addition to the annual clay pigeon shoot, the Napthens team in Blackburn also supports the East Lancashire Hospice as its chosen charity for 2017/18.
