BDS London Fundraiser - a great success!

A fantastic time was had on the evening of Wednesday 8th November at the BDS London Dinner when in excess of £50,000 was raised from the Live and Silent Auction, draw ticket sales and pledges in aid of BDS research and education.

Very many thanks are due to our extremely generous sponsors Knight Frank and to everyone who made it possible by helping with the organisation or by giving lots – there were with some especially great items from Rigby, Swarovski, Celtic Manor Resort, Knight Frank and a number of private donors. And of course not forgetting huge thanks to all participants who “dug deep” before and on the night to buy the goods!

Great British Game Week 20-26th November

Great British Game Week is back larger than ever before in its fourth successive year, highlighting everything that is fantastic and British about wild game.

The awareness week seeks to promote wild game to over 1 million people throughout the week and The Deer Initiative request your help in completing this challenge. Whilst the Countryside Alliance will be promoting wild game to new, larger markets, they wish to see their members and supporters spreading the word at the local level. If each member and supporter of shooting were to introduce one friend to wild game throughout the week it would give the market a substantial boost.
