A cancer charity has rejected a £30,000 donation over animal welfare concerns.
Barry Atkinson carried out a record 148 days' worth of beating - or flushing out birds - at grouse, partridge and pheasant shoots.
The 61-year-old, who lives near Newark in Nottinghamshire, said he was appalled the donation had been rejected by the Institute of Cancer Research.
The charity said it recognised the need to minimise pain and suffering in animals, so could not accept the money.
“Now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is
charity political correctness.”
