The Lewis Moody Foundation charity clay shoot, Newbury

A charity simulated flush day will be held at PennSport in Newbury in aid of the Lewis Moody Foundation (The Brain Tumour Charity) on June 30, 2017. Lewis Moody MBE and ex England and British and Irish Lions player Tom Croft, among others, will be in attendance and shooting.

The 16–20 teams of four will shoot eight flushes, with each Gun expected to get through 4-500 cartridges over the course of the day which includes a breakfast and two-course lunch.

After the shooting there will be a charity auction presented by Thomas Plant (of Bargain Hunt fame) and a silent art auction with Cash in the Attic star Jonty Hearndean.

Last year the event raised £20,000 and between them, guests shot 22,500 cartridges.
