Nobby hits high target for Sue Ryder hospice

Fundraiser Nobby Clarke

Nobby Clarke, from Silsden, hit the target once again for Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice in Oxenhope after his annual charity clay pigeon shoot was a resounding success.

Nobby has held the clay pigeon shoot for Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice since 2013, and this year raised an incredible £2,692 for the hospice. This takes the total amount donated up to £23,791 since the first ever event.

Nobby Clarke said: “I’m delighted to be able to help Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice with a good total again. I’d like to thank all who attended as well as Rob Thornber for preparing the chilli, Paul Allen at Craven Bakery for the finger rolls, and Lewis Robertshaw for providing the Upwood Hall Shoot near Silsden and Ripon Farm Services who donated cartridges for the event. Hopefully we now have the £25,000 mark in our sights for 2025.”

Sue Ryder Community Fundraising Manager Andrew Wood went to collect the funds and thank Nobby who kindly provides the clays for the event. He said: ‘We are very grateful to Nobby and his team for continuing to support us with his clay pigeon shoot.

“The funds raised mean we can continue to be there during the hardest times for people who need us the most.”
