Simon Hall, Chief Executive, Stonehaven Search: It’s extremely well organised. Unlike a lot of other clay shoots where they’re great fun but there’s an awful lot of waiting around, here it moves very quickly, there’s a very good crowd, a lot of hustle and bustle, there’s a lot of comradery and competition and I think Andrew and his team do a really good job of organising a rather complicated event.

Voiceover: In every one of the last 18 years Andrew Taee, the Fundraising Patron of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity and Marie Curie’s Special Events Patron, has stayed the fundraising charity shoot.

These events have now raised more than £5million – a staggering amount. And, these are shoots that’ll really stand out.

Simon Hall: The small touches which are actually vast, such as the Black Cat’s and the Red Arrows displays make a big difference, puts everybody in the mood for an auction and lunch.

Voiceover: This September, the Charity Shoot returns to the Royal Berkshire Shooting School and promises to be even better than ever. And, to provide crucially-needed support to these outstanding two charities.

Each year, Marie Curie provides expert care and emotional and practical support to more than 40,000 people with a terminal illness. Through its hands-on nursing care in people’s homes, its nine hospices around the UK, and its volunteer helper service, it enables families to make the most of  the time they have left together.

Great Ormond Street Hospital – a world centre of excellence – last year alone accommodated almost a quarter of a million patient visits. It has earned a global reputation for the exceptional treatments it provides, its state-of-the-art equipment and paediatric research, the quality of its staff and its provision of accommodation for parents at the time when a child needs them more than any other.

In everything it does, Great Ormond Street Hospital lives by its ethos of ‘The child first and always’.

Wednesday the 9th of September 2015 at the Royal Berkshire Shooting School in Pangbourne will be the perfect opportunity for colleagues, clients and friends to enjoy a truly memorable experience. A fabulous shoot, excellent dining and first-class entertainment, and supporting two outstanding British charities.

Do join us.
