AN OUTDOOR activity tournament will return this month for its second year.

Country Challenge, a fundraiser in aid of disability charity Diverse Abilities, will return on June 25, after raising £7,600 for the organisation in 2019.

The tournament involves a five outdoor activities, including clay pigeon shooting, archery and fly fishing, and takes place at Purbeck Shooting School, near Wareham.

Teams of four can enter for £500, which includes breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, and the winner will take home a wheelbarrow of alcohol. All the money raised will be used to care for children and adults with profound physical or learning disabilities and their families.

Karen Hay, events manager at Diverse Abilities, said: "Last time we hosted this event, we had 12 teams battle it out to be crowned sharpshooters of the day –everyone learnt new skills and had a great laugh along the way. It’s the perfect balance of competitive spirit and fun so there’s no need to have tried any of these activities before."

Graham Brown, managing director at Purbeck Shooting School, said: "We are proud to continue hosting this event with Diverse Abilities. We all know how tricky 2020 was for businesses across the board, and to be able to welcome old faces and new to the school while raising money for a worthy cause is a step in the right direction for recovery."
