Sunseeker London , Mayer Brown International LLP and MTU UK were delighted to support the Epping Breast Unit Charity at the recent ‘Shoot out Breast Cancer’ Clay Pigeon Shooting event held at the Royal Berkshire Shooting School.
One hundred and thirty guests were treated to the upmost level of hospitality by Dylan and his team at the RBSS. Each competitor enjoyed a full day of Clay shooting in the beautiful surroundings of West Berkshire.
Brand partner Browning was on hand and brought a selection of their finest guns for guests to shoot with. For a charitable donation, guests who trialed Browning guns were awarded double the points for that station.
Bentley Berkshire were also delighted to support this worthwhile cause and were in attendance with a selection of models including both the Petrol and Diesel Bentayga and a GTC convertible. The display included a newly launched Aston Martin DB11, a truly spectacular Supercar.
The entire day raised an incredible £50,000 for the Epping Breast Unit. There was a superb selection of auction items, including dinner for 12 guests cooked by Chef Anton Edelmann fetching a staggering £8000. Anton boasts cooking for the Queen Mother, the Queen, Princess Diana and President Clinton. Further auction prizes were the loan of a Bentley Bentayga for the Weekend raising £1,200 and 3 stunning metal sculptures by Flora Murchie Sculptures fetching a combined amount of £4,550.
There was also a prize giving with Top Guns awarded to team Fenton Holdings, as well as an ever popular ‘Clay Conservation Prize’ for those who may need a little more practice for next year.
