I was at my mates last night having a bit of a feed and a few bottles of wine, when my mates old man said you being a shooter what do you reckon to this.
One of his friends sadly lost his son to cancer last year, the guys great passion was to go beating and having done this for many years was well known at many of the well heeled shoots.
So he did a sponsored beat around these estates and was very well received by everyone, outstanding generosity from the fellow beaters to the shots raised over thirty thousand pounds for Cnacer Research, the cheque was drawn up and sent off with a note explaining how he had raised it.
Cancer research wrote back, thinking it was to thank him for the cheque he opened the letter only to find it was the cheque being returned with a curt letter stating that Cancer Research did not wish to accept his "blood money" !!!!
At first I thought it was a sick joke and waited for a punchline to be assured this was actually what had happened I felt sick inside really put a nasty taste to a great evening.
I don't know what has happened to the monies collected but I would sure as hell make sure it never went to these people, has anyone else heard about this?
I know not everyone agrees with shooting but it is about saving lives through medical research, a branch of medicine with its own furry skeletons in the lab cupboards, so who the f*ck are they to judge in this way a man who has raised an incredible sum to remember his son by.
Sorry for going on a bit guys but just still gobsmacked by the sheer lunacy these charity exhibit
