On Friday 22nd February the William Powell Sporting and William Powell Gun Room teams joined forces as the main sponsors of a GWCT Gun Makers evening at the Jockey Club, Newmarket. The evening was held to raise funds for the GWCT; to support all the excellent work they do in the region, and nationally.
Those other companies supporting the GWCT at this event included Holts Auctioneers, Fox and Co, Bentley and the British Game Alliance whom we, through our sister company JM Osborne and Co, are working closely with to assist them in their promotion of Game to eat. We would encourage everyone to visit the BGA’s website www.britishgamealliance.co.uk to find out more.
Will Garfit, the internationally renowned game shot and pigeon shooting guru, was the guest speaker and gave a superb speech to all in attendance with tails of his many shooting ventures, as well as giving the audience some useful tips which we will certainly be putting into practice when we are next out in the field.
Both our Sporting Agency and Gun Room teams thoroughly enjoyed the event, where we were delighted to show off our new bespoke over and under, the Prestige, and also our latest sporting availability.
We would like to thank the GWCT and the Jockey Club for inviting us to this event and for the opportunity to be the main sponsors. Here at William Powell we believe that the work that charities such as the GWCT do for the shooting industry is paramount for the future of our industry, and it was our pleasure in supporting them at this event.
We very much look forward to next years event, and hopefully seeing you there!
