On Saturday 11th August Jeffreyston village held their inaugural “Mackie Tucker Memorial Shoot” at the shooting ground in Jeffreyston. It was a special day as members of the club along with family and friends paid tribute to Malcolm Tucker who lived in Jeffreyston. Malcolm was a very well respected member of the community and an inspirational organiser within the local shooting club. Malcolm sadly lost his battle with cancer last year.
The memorial shoot was organised by his son Lee; in aid of Paul Sartori Hospice at home charity, who had provided the family with a great deal of assistance at a very difficult time. The prize winners on the day generously donated their prize money to the charitable cause and the club itself donated all of the income generated on the day – this all amounted to almost £800. The joint winners of the shoot were Lloyd Morris and Mike Lewis and the ladies trophy was won by Mai Felice, with the junior trophy given to Jack Rees.
A raffle that had been organised by the family of Mr Tucker, was also held in the evening at the Jeffreyston Inn where many wonderful prizes were generously donated by family, friends and local businesses. The First Prize of a Real Madrid Shirt signed by Gareth Bale was donated by Marc Jones a Financial Advisor; the second prize of £100 cash again donated by Marc Jones and the third prize of a magnificent carving of an Owl donated by Daniel Badham. The raffle itself raised just under £2,500.
Lee Tucker said, “The combined event was extremely successful and raised almost £3,300 for the charity to assist with their Hospice at Home service. The “Mackie Tucket Memorial Shoot” was a fitting tribute who was so well-loved and respected in the community of Jeffreyston and beyond.”
