Big Shots raises record total

Big Shots, the interiors industry’s annual clay pigeon shooting fundraiser, raised a record amount.

Some £42,000 was raised after 150 participants took part as 38 teams fought to claim the prizes, and raise funds for The Furniture Makers’ Company charity.

After the shooting drew to a close, there wasa lunch and charity auction followed by the prizegiving.

‘Big Shots returned with a bang this year with the event raising the largest amount in recorded memory. Thank you to everyone who joined us and made the day so memorable. We really appreciate all the sponsors who helped make the event a success, especially Furniture Village, our principal sponsor and event supporter,’ says Jonny Westbrooke, TFMC ceo.

‘We were delighted to support Big Shots which was, once again, a wonderful event and a great success. Thank you to everyone who joined us and helped raise an amazing £42,000 for our industry charity. It does vital work to help people from our trade who may have fallen on tough times and guides aspiring young talents seeking to carve their path in our sector. Furniture Village is thrilled to support the Big Shots event – not only is it for a great charitable cause, but it was also a very fun day for our team. We were thrilled to exceed last year’s total amount raised and we are already looking forward to next year’s event, so make sure to save the date in your diary,’ says Charlie Harrison, Furniture Village md.

Full results of the competition were: Top Team – Clay Bashers; Runner up team – The Chosen Men; Top Flurry – Hypnos Hot Shots Legacy; Top Novice Shots – The Fighting Twenty Fifth; Top Male – Liam McPartland; Top Female – Lizzie Shaw and Top Gun Novice – Christopher Shaw.
