A clay shooting event in aid of a charity which gives young people a sporting chance raised more than 33,000. The Princes Trusts third Sporting Clay Shoot was sponsored by Coutts.


More than 100 guests attended the event, run by the Royal Berkshire Shooting School at the Duke of Westminsters Eaton Estate in Chester.


Twenty teams competed and after a competitive five drive shooting contest, guests took part in an auction to raise money for the Trust. The winning team was Wealth Management captained by Mark Robinson while Green and Tweeds, led by Paul Bolton were the Glorious 12th.


Auction prizes included a tour of the BBCs Match of the Day studios, a Boodles 18 carat white gold diamond roulette pendant, a VIP visit to RAF Valley on Anglesey and a luxury stay at the Gilpin Hotel and Lake House near Windermere.


Young ambassador Hilary Harris, from Manchester, told guests her life had been turned around by the Trust.


Hilary said: Before I got involved with the Trust I was completely lost and didnt know where to turn. The Princes Trust gave me a lifeline and completely turned my life around. I cant speak highly enough of them and would encourage other young people who need support to give them a call.


Last year, more than three in four young people on Princes Trust schemes moved into work, education or training.


Coutts was the main sponsor of this event. Other supporters included Boodles, Chester Racecourse and Hunters Land Rover, Chester.
