WALES rugby legend Gareth Edwards was among dozens of fundraisers to take part in a charity shooting day in aid of the Handicapped Children’s Pilgrimage Trust last week.
He was joined by former Pontypool players Graham Price and Simon Hill, as well as members of the Newport Gwent Dragons, at Tree Tops Sporting Ground, Coedkernew, last Friday.
Around 15 teams of five took to Cefn Logell wood for a round of clay pigeon shooting before a dinner and auction. Among the items sold were a pair of signed Ricky Hatton boxing gloves, a signed Dragons shirt and a round of golf at the city’s Celtic Manor Resort.
The money raised, which is still being counted, will be donated to the charity’s Newport branch, which takes children with disabilities, social or emotional needs, on a pilgrimage holiday to Lourdes each Easter.
