Incentive FM Group, the UK’s leading independent facilities company, beat their target of £10,000 and raised £11,600 for Scotty’s Little Soldiers during their annual charity clay pigeon shoot. The event was held at E J Churchill in High Wycombe, and also included a charity auction. Simon Millar from the charity spoke about how he was inspired by the experience of Army widow Nikki Scott, who set up the charity in her husband’s, Corporal Lee Scott’s, memory.
Fifteen teams (75 guns) entered the event, each consisting of five friends, colleagues or customers. The event is open to all and included teams from Barclays, London & Capital, and Michael Page. The winning team on the day, ‘Shooting Stars’, led by Incentive FM’s Operations Director Glenn Wilson, was from Ideal 365 and ACM Environmental Plc with 340 points and the highest scoring woman of the day went to Deborah Wilson from Barclays.
Jeremy Waud, Chairman, Incentive FM Group, said:
“Yet again, the charity clay pigeon shoot was a fantastic and fun event and we are thrilled to have beaten our target for such a worthy cause. The money will make a real difference when it comes to offering bereaved children the opportunity to smile again through fun activities and holidays. We are determined to make a positive impact for these children and will continue to support Scotty’s Little Soldiers with future fundraising events.”
