In the heart of the South Downs National Park, Southdown is ideally located as a charity event venue. And, as the largest commercial shooting ground in the South East of England, we offer the perfect venue to host events and charity days.
We find that shooting days and competitions are one of the most fun ways to raise money for charity. We are open all year round as a charity event venue, so there are plenty of opportunities to host your important fundraising event with us.
Charity Event Ideas
Southdown Gun Club has been part of the local community for over 30 years. Through our charity venue hire, we have helped organise many unique fundraising ideas for charity, with regular competitions and events. Alongside having fun and enjoying some fresh air, the venue is a great place to raise funds for your cause, providing a well organised and exciting spot for guests to have a great experience.
We have helped numerous charities with unique shooting events and other fun ways to raise money for charity. A typical charity day starts with a breakfast roll on arrival – which gives you a chance to meet your guests – followed by a full safety briefing before the main event starts.
Regardless of your guests’ experience levels, we will provide suitable guns and ammunition on all the dedicated shooting positions, where a Southdown instructor will be ready to greet you and offer instruction as required. The dedicated course will be set up for your event with targets laid to suit the ability of the shooters. For those who don’t have the necessary safety gear, everything can be provided.
When the shooting has finished, everyone will retire for some well-earned relaxation time. You will then enjoy a fantastic lunch from our caterers, who have a range of menus to suit all preferences and dietary requirements. We invite you to stay as long as you like and make the most of the fundraising opportunities with your guests.
