Thames-Valley-Shooting-Cup-2019

The Thames Valley Shooting Cup 2019 Raises £11,000 For Charity

In this part of the season, it can be increasingly difficult to find anything close to or that resembles “good weather”. We find ourselves scrambling for opportunities to enjoy the dwindling sunlight while battling weather that curiously resembles the film “The Day After Tomorrow”. For those of you who have not seen the film here is a three-word description, it’s very cold. However, the weather on the day of the annual shooting cup was particularly favourable, so much so we had occasional bursts of sunlight bringing out all the vibrant colours of the E.J. Churchill grounds. With the weather in good standing and E.J.Churchill’s award-winning clay pigeon shooting grounds offering a scenic background our forty-four competitors had an exciting day ahead of them!

The format this year saw forty-four property professionals split into three groups characterised by a red, green and blue E.J. Churchill branded cap. Within these three groups were 3/4 teams each representing a company competing for the Jansons cup and the prizes that come with it. The winners would receive a bottle of champagne for each member of the winning team along with the winning trophy. The runners up would receive a bottle of champagne each while the best triers received a stuffed grouse. Following their arrival, the first order of business was a freshly made lunch with some dessert pieces for those with a sweet tooth. This was then followed by introductions and a short briefing from the excellent E.J. Churchill staff. Our competitors were let loose into 40 acres of stunning woodland which camouflaged the many shooting grounds on site. As the instructors led their respective groups through the woodland, you developed an understanding of how E.J. Churchill secured their prestigious accolades. Everything from the highly trained instructors, well-crafted apparatus to the over 120 clay shooting stands.

In the end, our competitors put in an exemplary display. Regardless of how experienced a shooter you were, there was ample opportunity to really enjoy yourself and learn something new. Each shooting stand was a place of sportsmanship, youthful exuberance and the banter you would expect when you get a group personalities together. However of the eleven teams there could only be one winner, one runners up and one best trier. Team Follett, a team consisting of James Jason, Anthony Henry-Lyons, Marco Pangherz and James Hall, won the Jansons Cup with an impressive 422/500. Peaky Blinders, a team consisting of Andrew Shaw, David Bailey, Andy Townsend and Max Thorne , were our runners up with 412/500. The best triers prizes went to Nexus Planning, a team consisting of Shaun Andrews, Adam Ross, Rob Pearson and Andrew Somerville , who managed to secure a score of 289/500. As an added bonus the Thames Valley Shooting Cup raised £11,000 for the Alexander Jansons Fund, a charity dedicated to raising funds for research into the causes, prevention and cures for Myocarditis.

Jansons Property will be hosting more clay pigeon shooting events throughout next year, we look forward to more opportunities to compete and network with more industry professionals.

Jansons Complete The Three Peaks Challenge

Weekends are often reserved for rest and relaxation, a couple of days to disconnect from one’s duties and immerse one’s self into life outside of the day job. This was not the case for Andy Jansons and Paul Nash of Jansons Property, the pair trekked an arduous 24 miles, up three peaks in an impressive eleven hours!

The purpose of taking on this challenge was to raise funds in support of the Alexander Jansons Fund, a charity created following the death of Alexander Jansons from Myocarditis. Myocarditis is a virus which attacks the heart and affects individuals of all ages but most frequently in the young. The fund has pledged a minimum of £80,000 per year to fund research and activities relating to Myocarditis.

So far the three peaks challenge raised £1,570, an amount which we are very grateful for. However, we require further generous donations to reach our fundraising target of £2,000. The funds raised will go towards research into the causes, prevention, cures for Myocarditis and an overall aim of increasing awareness of the condition. Any donation you can make will be much appreciated by the Jansons team.
