Saturday 12th August 2017 

Come and join Chiara and the Femmes Fatales for their summer competition and celebrate the Glorious Twelfth and help to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

This is a special day we’re hosting in rural Nottinghamshire on Saturday August 12th with Emily and the team at Orston Shooting Ground that will cater for both beginners and the more experienced shot. We’re looking to raise money for a great cause whilst giving ladies an introduction to the sport and running a separate competition for those with their own guns.

Shoot for a Great Cause 

Macmillan is a fantastic charity and the work they do to support people who are diagnosed with cancer, throughout treatment and beyond is to help make sure no one faces cancer alone. This is something close to my heart that has touched the lives of many including my own friends and family. In 2015 Macmillan reported that 2.5 million people were living with cancer highlighting how invaluable the work they do is and what a difference our support and any funds we raise can make.


The beginners category is for those with little or no shooting experience who don’t have their own shotgun. You’ll spend time with an instructor learning all about gun safety before heading out to start breaking those clays. The session will consist of practice first before then taking part in a fun competition.

The cost for beginners is £85 per person (Instruction & all equipment including cartridges provided)

Experienced Shots 

For those with their own gun there is the experienced category consisting of a 100 bird sporting competition which includes a 20 bird grouse flush in the game arena. We have a huge prize haul, including something very special that will be won by one lucky lady on the day. Please provide your CPSA number and classification if you have one on booking. Categories to be announced on the day.

The cost for experienced shots is £65 per person (Shotgun and cartridges not provided)

What To Expect 

The day includes breakfast on arrival and a BBQ lunch in the afternoon.

In addition, have you ever wanted to try your hand at fly fishing? The amazing team from Orvis Harrogate are attending so there will be chance to find out more about it and have a go.

There will be some fun prizes up for grabs along with a raffle to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Each entry includes a £5 donation towards the fundraising on the day.
