South West comes together at regional shoot

More than 40 people attended a charity clay shoot organised by The Furniture Makers’ Company’s South West Regional Committee earlier this month, raising a cracking £540.

The South West Region Shoot took place on 18 July at Mendip Shooting Grounds, with employees from Artichoke, Axminster Tools & Machinery and Halstock among the attendees.

Bruce Hodgson of Artichoke was named ‘best shooter’ and Halstock Team Number 1 were the ‘best team’.

The shooting competition was followed by a lunch, after which Jonny Westbrooke, CEO at The Furniture Makers’ Company, informed the guests of our new welfare campaign, One Step at a Time.

Jonny Westbrooke said: “We’d like to thank the South West Regional Committee for hosting a fantastic day of shooting, which brought together companies and individuals from across the region. We’d like to say a special thanks to John Hampton at Artichoke for his help with making the event happen.”

The Furniture Makers’ Company has six regional committees – the North East, North West, Yorkshire, Central, South West and Southern.

Each committee aims to organise a number of fundraising and networking events in their area for members and non-members of The Furniture Makers Company.
