Purbeck challenge sees teams take aim at charity fundraising total

A CHARITY challenge will see participants take aim at a large fundraising total for a worthy cause.

The annual Country Challenge, in aid of Dorset’s disability charity Diverse Abilities, returns for its fourth year at Purbeck Shooting School near Wareham, sponsored by Town and Country Communications & IT Solutions.

Teams can take part in the event, on Friday, June 23, putting themselves to the test in a tournament involving five different activities; clay pigeon shooting, target rifles, archery, fly fishing and more.

Mariana Swain, events executive at Diverse Abilities, said: “This is a great team building activity.

“Over the last few years, everyone has learnt new skills and had a great laugh along the way.

“It’s the perfect balance of competitive spirit and fun so there’s no need to have tried any of these activities before.”

Lee Butler, managing director at Town and Country, added: “This is a great opportunity to support a local charity who do so much to support children and adults with disabilities in the Dorset area.

“We are looking forward to getting involved and meeting the other teams who will be coming together for a day of challenges.”

Teams of four can enter from £500, which includes a bacon sandwich and lunch, and each activity will come with expert tuition to maximise chances of winning.

Money raised by the teams will help to provide vital support at the charity, including days out for children, much-needed equipment at Langside School, and activities for adults who attend The Beehive – the charity’s activity and day centre.

Purbeck Shooting School was established in 1955 and has been voted as the Best Shooting Ground in the UK.
