The Great Ormond Street and Marie Curie Charity shoot at the Englefield estate last month has been heralded as a great success
The Berkshire shoot took place on 20 May, hosted by Andrew Taee, chairman of the event and patron of fund-raising at Great Ormond Hospital, along with Ben Elliot of the Quintessentially Foundation. It saw 180 guests enjoy a day’s shooting courtesy of the estate owner Richard Benyon MP. Following a successful auction, more than £310,000 was raised for the Marie Curie Charity and Great Ormond Street.
When it comes to inventive shooting ideas to raise money for charity, the Vyrnwy Shoot takes some beating!
Andrew Taee said: “People’s generosity never ceases to amaze me; people from all walks of life come to these events with open hearts and give what they can to make a real difference. I am personally indebted to the team who make all this possible and to the outstanding generosity of all those who support me.”
The Royal Berkshire Shooting School co-ordinated the shooting over the 16,000-acre estate before guests enjoyed an air display by The Blades display team and entertainment from comedian Barry Cryer.
