Incentive FM Group hit their target and raised £9,000 for The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust during a charity clay pigeon shoot. The event was held at the Horne Clay Pigeon Club in Reigate, Surrey, and also included a charity auction.
Twelve teams (60 guns) entered the event, each consisting of five friends, colleagues or customers.
The event is open to all but more specifically the FM industry. After judicious handicapping of the more experienced teams, the winning team on the day was from Incentive Lynx Security and the High Gun individual award was shared by Martin Reed, Incentive FM Group MD and Robin Booker of Morphose on 28 out of 36 clays in the twelve stand competition.
Jeremy Waud, Chairman, Incentive FM Group, said:
“Yet again, the charity clay pigeon shoot was a fantastic and fun event are we are thrilled to have raised £9,000 for The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, which is a very worthy cause. The money will make a real difference when it comes to protecting and preserving endangered species across Africa, including elephants and Black Rhino.”
Amie Alden from the charity spoke about the plight of the World’s elephants, explaining that 96 elephants a day are still being killed and at the current rate the species will be extinct within a decade.
