As restrictions lift in England, The Nelson Trust is proud to be hosting their annual (until 2020!) Clay Shoot and Dinner at Berkeley Castle on 19th August and Charity Golf Day at Minchinhampton Golf Club on 3rd September.

Thanks again to the generosity of Charles Berkeley and sponsors Cotswold BMW and RenGen, The Nelson Trust is able to offer this exclusive opportunity to shoot at the glorious Deer Park on the Castle estate, followed by a sumptuous dinner in the magnificent Great Hall of the historic castle.

The day starts with a BBQ of Berkeley Estate’s home-reared venison burgers or a vegetarian alternative.

Jeremy Hill, a member of The Nelson Trust Fundraising Committee said, “There will be various traps ranging in difficulty level, so you’ll be guaranteed a great day’s shooting no matter your ability level. The Browning Rabbit Mania will test the ground game specialists and try your team shooting laser guns at clays which record the scores electronically – with the spectacular Folly as the backdrop!

After dinner, you’ll have the chance to bid on some fabulously tempting auction lots including shooting, holidays and an extraordinary private tour for two of Chateau Lafite Rothschild.”

The Golf Day is hosted by The Nelson Trust CEO John Trolan. Held at Minchinhampton Golf Course, which hosts The Open Regional Qualifying Series, the date is a week after the club’s ProAm so the course will be at its best.

Ex-Arsenal and England Captain Tony Adams will attend the day. Teams also have the opportunity of a lifetime to bid in advance of the day to have rugby stars Mike Tindall and Lee Mears as part of their four ball and be regaled about their times on the Lions and England squads.

Players could even win a new BMW for a hole in one, as happened in 2019!

Director of sponsor Cotswold BMW, Paul Neale said, “Cotswold BMW Cheltenham are proud to continue to support the Nelson Trust as they have in the previous few years. Supporting local charities aligns with our desire to support our local communities as much as we can.”

RenGen Developments are also sponsoring both events. CEO Iestyn Lewis said, ”We are delighted to be involved with both these fabulous occasions and are especially pleased to be able to bring top rugby stars Jeremy Guscot, Martin Haag, Matt Perry and Phil de Glanville to the golf day”.

The Nelson Trust helps provides rehabilitation from addiction and substance abuse for men and women. It gives them hope and support for long-term recovery and the belief and confidence which they need in order to achieve this.

The Trust also supports vulnerable women in the community who are in need of help with a variety of matters such as physical/mental health, accommodation, finance and family relationships.

Tickets for the shoot are £150 per person and tickets for the dinner are £75 each.
The Golf Day is £100 per person with breakfast rolls on arrival and a two-course lunch at the clubhouse. The Golf Day is fully subscribed but you can contact us to be added to the waiting list.
