A clay shooting day raised over £3,000 for charity.

Darrell Halford, of Hornchurch, arranged the shoot at Dartford Clay Shooting Club, Joyce Green Lane, Dartford on May 18.

He organised the shoot to raise money for charity Meningitis Now, after his son Daniel lost his life to the illness aged just 18.

“It’s good to raise money for a great charity, because it’s such a vicious disease.

“He used to go shooting with us and he enjoyed it.

“It’s just a good way of keeping Daniel’s memory alive and raising money for the charity,” Darrell explained.

More than 60 people attended the shoot.

It was won by Harry Barrington-Mountford who was presented with a trophy.

“We have a trophy that gets engraved every year and we have a handicap to make it fair,” Darrell added.

The total raised on the day was £3,106.00 and Darrell has raised an overall £8,381.
