British Shooting was delighted to present the winner of our Shotgun competition with her prize at Ian Coley’s Shooting School this week.
The truly unique prize of a Caesar Guerini Invictus 1 Shotgun, was kindly donated by Anglo Italian Arms UK and Caesar Guerini and was presented to Petra and Madeleine Boyd (mother and daughter).
It was Petra who entered the competition after receiving British Shooting’s eNewsletter earlier this year and she was delighted when told she'd won. She instantly knew she was going to give the shotgun to her daughter, who is currently on the British Shooting Talent Pathway.
Petra said: “We saw the competition through an email and we entered because we knew proceeds were going towards supporting the Talent Pathway.
“My daughter Madeline has been on the Pathway for around three years and has recently progressed to the next level so her confidence is high.
“She is a Skeet shooter and we are delighted that having spoken to Kevin Gill, he is willing to substitute the prize for a Skeet specific model from Caesar Guerini.”
The competition proceeds have directly supported the GB Talent Pathway athletes of the future and British Shooting would like to thank everyone for their generous donations and entries.
Shotgun Head Coach and Anglo Italian Arms owner, Kevin Gill, said: “I’m really please that in offering the shotgun as a prize, we have been able to not only promote British Shooting, but also ensure vital funds are raised for the Talent Pathway as well as helping the future of our fantastic sport.
“The whole culture of British Shooting has changed for the better in recent years and I’m dedicated to doing anything I can to help support its progress going forward.
“Being able to personally hand the gun over to the prize winner made it even more special and when I found out she was a budding Skeet shooting, I was happy to change the gun to a Skeet specific model.
British Shooting’s Events and Commercial Co-ordinator, Gorgs Geikie, said: “I’d like to say a huge congratulations to the winner. The family are all keen shooters and the fact that the winner is on the Talent Pathway highlights just how directly the competition is helping the future of shooting.
“This is the first time we’ve done anything like this to raise funds for our Pathway and the amount of support the competition had was fantastic.
“I’d finally like to say a huge thank you to Anglo Italian Arms and Caesar Guerini for their support."
