Scotland’s premier all female shooting club, Glad Rags and Cartridge Bags is delighted to announce that with gracious permission of Her Majesty the Queen, they will be hosting a charity clay shoot at Delnadamph, part of the Balmoral Estate, due to take place later in the year. Another exciting announcement is that Shepherd and Wedderburn Solicitors has become the latest sponsor to join the Glad Rags family.
Mhairi Morriss, founder of Glad Rags & Cartridge Bags said: “Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined Her Majesty The Queen would grant permission for us to hold an event on the Delnadamph Estate.”
Kathleen O’Connor who looks after ladies shooting for BASC, British Association for Shooting and Conservation, said: “Through her ladies shooting group, Mhairi continues to introduce scores of ladies to shooting, supporting both novice and experienced in some of Scotland’s most picturesque settings. Building not just on skills but confidence and friendships. BASC Ladies Shooting are proud to be involved and support this special Royal themed event, when it takes place later this year, with the inaugural ‘Queen of the Clays’ trophy.”
The club is going from strength to strength, with new ladies joining every month and Shepherd and Wedderburn, the largest Scottish-headquartered UK law firm, has now come onboard as an additional corporate sponsor of Glad Rags and Cartridge Bags, joining MHA Henderson Loggie Accountants, Weatherbys Private Bank, Station Garage Mitsubishi and Country Ways.
Gillian Campbell, Partner and Head of Private Client at Shepherd and Wedderburn in the north of Scotland, said: “Outdoor pursuits are such an important part of life and we’re delighted to have this opportunity to visit beautiful locations, such as Wardhill Castle, and support the work of Glad Rags, whilst meeting new people and having great fun.”
Mhairi continues: “Who would have thought five years on this is where we are, it’s the fantastic ladies who come along that make Glad Rags what it is. It’s such a pleasure to be part of something so very very special.”
Ladies of all abilities are very welcome at all Glad Rags & Cartridge Bags events. Unlike other shooting clubs Glad Rags does not hold its clay shooting events at traditional shooting grounds, instead operating a roving syndicate holding shoots at some of Scotland’s most stunning special venues.
