Supporting the Gamekeepers Welfare Trust

This shooting season we will be raising money for The Gamekeepers Welfare Trust through the sales of our Beaters Flags.

50p from every beaters flag sold from today, the 1st of October, to the 20th December will be donated and we hope to raise around £800-£1000.

The Gamekeepers Welfare Trust exists to support gamekeepers, stalkers and ghillies, and their dependents past and present. By providing financial grants for gamekeepers, stalkers and ghillies and their families in times of hardship, ill health and retirement. Small grants are available for young people making gamekeeping their career. The helpline is a key part of the service providing a confidential listening service with information and support on a wide variety of issues including health, retirement, redundancy, housing and employment issues.

This year, perhaps more than ever before, people have faced big challenges. The GWT’s campaign #gwtgettingthroughtheweek was set up in April to help anyone who is feeling the pressure, in work, at home or just with the situation we are all living with at the moment. Anxieties for your own health, or others is natural, feeling anxious about jobs, homes and future – it is an uncertain world just now and the GWT want you to know we are here to help in whatever place you find yourself. We all have good days and not so good days so “its ok not to be ok”.
