A group of women from our Clitheroe office have helped raise £600 for Breast Cancer Care after taking part in a charity clay pigeon shoot.
Wendy Newbury organised the ‘Take a Shot at Cancer’ event at the Huntroyde Estate in the Ribble Valley with the help of Irene Chenery, Lucy Beachell and Nicola Beneduce.
Clients and local partners of the firm were invited to take part with guests treated to breakfast and lunch as part of the charity networking event.
Wendy Newbury, Senior Associate at Harrison Drury, said: “We all know someone affected by cancer, so it’s always pleasing to seize the opportunity to support a charity that helps so many people through a very difficult and uncertain time.
“Our event was a fun way to raise money for Breast Cancer Care and we also got to enjoy a fabulous breakfast and lunch in the picturesque surroundings of the Huntroyde Estate.”
Breast Cancer Care merged with Breast Cancer Now in April this year to form one UK-wide charity. It supports world-class research and life-changing care for anyone affected by breast cancer.
The Huntroyde Estate is based at Simonstone in the Ribble Valley in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is home to the historic Huntroyde Hall and the 360-acre Home Farm and is still run by the Starkie family which has owned and managed the estate for over 400 years.
