Film director Guy Ritchie and his wife Jacqui were among guests at a private charity clay shoot held at the Fonthill Estate, near Warminster, in aid of Julia’s House, the Dorset and Wiltshire children’s hospices.

The couple, who are both patrons of Julia’s House, joined more than 100 other guests who enjoyed a morning of shooting followed by lunch in the gardens of Fonthill, home of Lord Margadale, who hosted the event.

Guy and Jacqui were pivotal in kick-starting the fundraising for Wiltshire’s first children’s hospice, which opened in Devizes a year ago, after raising £1 million pounds at their own star-studded charity shoot on their neighbouring Ashmore Estate on the Dorset/Wiltshire border.
