When was the last time you shot the guns at the back of your cabinet? Do you have too many to choose from, with not enough days in the season to shoot them all?

Or have you had your fill and left the shooting to the younger generation? If so, your unused gun could make a real difference.

2020 was a difficult year for many in the shooting community, especially for charitable organisations with many suffering from significant fundraising shortfalls.

Our proposal is simple, donate your unused guns to raise funds for a worthy cause. HOLTS will auction the guns as part of our next sale. HOLTS will be charging zero sellers fees to allow more proceeds to go to a field sports cause of your choice.

Nicholas Holt Director and Founder of HOLTS Auctioneers personally recommends the following:
• The Country Food Trust
• Countryside Alliance
• Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust
• Game Keepers Welfare Fund
• Gun and Allied Trades Benevolent Fund
• The Wildlife Habitat Charitable Trust (BASC)
• The Worshipful Gunmakers Charitable Trust

It does not matter what gun you are able to donate; it could be a Purdey, AYA or even your first .410, anything goes. Nicholas Holt commented “Your generous donation will enable us as a field sports community to raise much needed funds for our charities and support their vital work during these troubled times.” If you are interested in donating or would like to find out more, please contact Charlie Young at charlie@holtsauctioneers.com.

Now more than ever they need our support.

Thank you.
