Charity shooting challenge raises over £270,000

Churchill Retirement Living is proud to announce that its charitable arm the Churchill Foundation, in partnership with the Quintessentially Foundation, has raised a highest ever grand total of over £270,000 at its Annual Clay Pigeon Shooting Challenge and Charity Auction.

The shooting challenge was attended by over 150 guests including a host of business partners, friends and connections. Guests contributed generously to raise funds for two chosen charities, Walking With the Wounded, and Dallaglio Rugby Works, which will benefit jointly from the proceeds raised.

Now in its 5th year, this incredibly successful event took place at Englefield Estate in Berkshire on 18th May 2017. It was supported by security group Banham, as well as Bentley, Taittinger, Purdey and Le Chameau.

The Churchill Foundation is a registered charitable trust, with Dame Esther Rantzen DBE as its Patron. The Foundation enables Churchill to support the many local communities where it works, and give to a wide range of charities based on three core areas: the relief of sickness, disease and human suffering; the promotion of health amongst the elderly; and the support and wellbeing of the young.

One of the Churchill Foundation’s main charity partners for 2017, Walking With The Wounded is a national Armed Forces charity raising funds to retrain and re-skill wounded servicemen and women and support them in finding new careers outside the Military.

Spencer McCarthy, Churchill Retirement Living’s Chairman & CEO and a Trustee of the Churchill Foundation, said:

“The Churchill Foundation is a relatively new initiative that we are very proud of and its aim is to transform people’s lives by supporting our main Charity Partners as well as a wide range of smaller charities. The Foundation raised over a quarter of a million pounds in 2016, and our Annual Shooting Challenge played a very big part in that. We’re delighted that the event was such a success again this year, and the money it’s raised for Walking With the Wounded and Dallaglio Rugby Works will be vital to the important work both charities do.”
