A charity clay shooting event sponsored by Stratstone of Mayfair has raised nearly £100,000 for Julia's House, The Dorset & Wiltshire Children's Hospice.
The premium car retailer is the official vehicle partner for the Royal Berkshire Shooting School and was delighted to team up for this charity event, held at Crichel House in Dorset, to raise thousands of pounds for Julia's House.
The day started with arrival and registration, followed by a delicious breakfast for all guests. Once breakfast had finished, Managing Director of The Royal Berkshire Shooting School, Dylan Williams, gave a shoot briefing. With ten shooting stands around the grounds, guests were put into teams of four and had three hours to enjoy the activity.
Once the shooting was finished, a champagne reception was held back at the shoot lodge and guests enjoyed a three-course lunch with cheese and coffee after. The live charity auction took place at 3:30pm, followed closely by the prize giving.
Julia's House is an award-winning children's hospice, dedicated to bringing comfort and care to families across Dorset and Wiltshire. The care provided by Julia's House is unique, all tailored to the needs of individual children and their family. Support is provided at home, in the community or within the hospice - wherever needed.
Funds were raised through ticket sales, charity auctions and sponsorship, such as the one from Stratstone of Mayfair. The money raised will help Julia's House to provide practical and emotional support to the families of children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.
Stratstone displayed an Aston Martin Vanquish S Coupe at the event, with guests transported in the new Land Rover Discovery and Range Rover models.
"We're delighted that the event at Crichel House was a success. It was a privilege to be able to sponsor this event, which has raised a phenomenal amount of money for such a worthy cause."
- Peter Ward, Head of Business at Stratstone of Mayfair
