Victoria Tetley, Business Development Manager at E. J. Churchill, said: “We look forward to welcoming people to E.J. Churchill on 25th July to give clay shooting a go. We pride ourselves on making the facilities here as accessible as possible and this is a fantastic opportunity for everyone who has always wanted to have a go but never known where to start. Clay shooting is a challenging but rewarding sport that everyone can get involved with and enjoy.

“It is great that Paralympic sport is becoming widely recognised and celebrated across the country and we are very proud to be supporting National Paralympic Day 2015.”

Sarah Chambers, Project Manager for National Paralympic Day at the British Paralympic Association, said: “It’s absolutely fantastic that E.J. Churchill are getting into the spirit of National Paralympic Day.

“As the countdown to Rio continues, we’re encouraging people to get involved by either coming to one of our events in London, Plymouth, Nottingham or Brighton on July 26, or to join up with an event like this in their local community.

“National Paralympic Day gives people the opportunity to celebrate what they love about the Paralympics and I think that this event fits the bill perfectly. It is a fun way for people of all ages to show their support for the Paralympics.”
