Jay-Be® attended the ‘Northern Big Shots’ clay pigeon shooting event hosted by The Furniture Makers Company along with Tempur, Furniture Village, Sleepezee and Silentnight amongst others.
Big Shots is a great event and a chance to entertain clients, suppliers and industry colleagues whilst also being an ideal team building opportunity for colleagues. Staff from Jay-Be’s head office were joined by a guest from Staycity and all the teams enjoyed a fun-packed day of clay shooting with a hint of friendly competition.
The event was held at the Coniston Hotel and Country Estate in Skipton, known for its scenic surroundings in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. The Coniston is one of the best shooting grounds in the country and was recently awarded premier ground status by the Clay Pigeon Shooting Association.
2019 marks 25 years of Big Shots, which has long been a firm highlight in the furnishing industry’s calendar. The Furniture Makers Company celebrated the anniversary by making this year’s events even bigger and better than ever before.
The ‘Big Shots’ event is primarily a way for The Furniture Makers Company to highlight the importance of their charity, which raises funds to encourage young people to pursue careers in the furnishing sector and helps people already in the trade who have fallen on hard times.
The Furniture Makers company aims to inspire excellence in the industry, educate the workforce of the future, and provide help to those in need. All money raised from the day goes into their charity, and Jay-Be® was very proud to have been involved.
