Teams from across the industry got trigger-happy last week in aid of Chickenshed.
Twenty teams of crack shots met last week at the Royal Berkshire Shooting School intent on taking home the title of Top Gun.
The event, which raised £66,530 for north London-based inclusive theatre group Chickenshed, was organised by Harvey Soning, chairman and founder of James Andrew International, and Tony Gibbon, chair of Chickenshed Theatre Trust, and was sponsored by Live-In Guardians.
Attendees were on good form, with 6,505 of 10,500 (over 60%) of all points scored.
James Taylor Group’s chief executive Emil Sohrab took home the individual men’s prize, while James Andrew’s associate director Liz McGovern was the women’s individual sharpshooter. The top team prize was won by the group chaired by Guy Rudd, managing director and head of real estate of Revantage, while the team from Property Week brought up the rear and were handed the Clay Conservation award.
Attendees were treated to performances by some of the Chickenshed cast followed by a champagne reception and three-course lunch, during which they were invited by Allsop’s partner and auctioneer Duncan Moir to bid in a live auction for lots including a River Café lunch or dinner for four and a hand-made suit by Thom Sweeney.
Next year’s event will take place on 5 October.
