BASC Wiltshire social committee launches conservation and Young Shots fund –

#8220;Although we are not a fundraising group, game suppers, clay shoots and other events we have organised have made a profit and we decided to plough this back into the county with this new scheme. We now welcome applications from BASC members, youth groups and local community groups. One of our main aims is to get young people involved in practical hands-on conservation activities in the countryside.#8221;

David Gervers, director of BASC South West, said: #8220;This fund is a great example of what can be achieved by BASC members, staff and supporters working together at a grass-roots level.  The opportunity to support a wide range of small-scale conservation and other projects is exciting and we look forward to talking to any groups in the county who might have a suitable idea – not just the shooting fraternity.”
