The Peter Jones Foundation raises £172K in annual Charity Shoot Fundraiser

The Peter Jones Foundation was delighted to round off a successful day of fundraising on Friday 7th July 2023 at the exclusive Royal Berkshire Shooting School, located near Pangbourne amongst 70 acres of scenic English countryside. Our Founder and Chairman Peter Jones CBE hosted a fantastic day of Clay Pigeon Shooting packed with friendly competition.

Some of the UK’s best-known business leaders joined to support the Foundation. Those in attendance included Touker Suleyman, Entrepreneur and Dragon on the BBC hit series Dragon’s Den, Tej Lalvani, CEO of the UK’s largest vitamins company Vitabiotics and Mike Clare, Founder and Chairman of The Clare Foundation.

Richard Bell won the coveted title of Top Shooter and was presented with his prize by Peter Jones CBE.

This year’s Charity Shoot saw £172K raised which will enable the Peter Jones Foundation to continue to support young people and their entrepreneurial dreams through programmes such as the Tycoon Enterprise Competition and National Entrepreneur of the Year.

Peter Jones CBE said:

“I believe that with the right mix of support and opportunity, every young person has the potential to achieve great things and the right to a brighter future. Days like today allow us to raise vital funds towards our charitable programmes that make a difference across the country, and I am so grateful for all the support that everyone has shown. Business changed my life, and I am delighted that we can change many more lives with the money raised at today’s PJF Shoot event.”  

The Foundation is incredibly grateful for the support of the businesses and guests who made this fundraiser possible.

We welcome you to join our next charity fundraiser; Race for Enterprise, taking place at the iconic Goodwood Motor Circuit on Tuesday 31st October 2023. This will provide the perfect opportunity to support the Foundation whilst enjoying a unique and exhilarating driving experience.

About the Peter Jones Foundation

The Peter Jones Foundation exists to improve the socio-economic outcomes for young people by equipping them with enterprise skills to better prepare them for successful employment or self-employment. We do this through encouraging, educating and empowering the young people we serve.

The Peter Jones Foundation was founded in 2005 by successful entrepreneur and star of Dragons’ Den, Peter Jones CBE. We believe that with the right mix of support and opportunity, every young person has the potential to achieve great things.

To achieve this, we deliver world-class enterprise education initiatives within the UK and across the world. It is our aim that 60% of the young people we support are from under-served and under-represented communities.

  • We encourage students to form their first business and compete with other student teams through our flagship program, the Tycoon Enterprise Competition. In the UK, this programme allows schools to access a full suite of resources and up to £3,000 funding, with the opportunity to attend our national awards ceremony.
  • We educate students through our suite of accredited courses and qualifications in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship developed with Pearson, at Level 2 and Level 3, through both the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy (PJEA) and as standalone qualifications. We also offer A Level in Business Studies and Economics to school and college providers.
  • We empower our graduates by supporting them into various pathways such as to start a business, secure a job or an apprenticeship, or a place on an Higher Education or Further Education programme of study. Through our Alumni platform, we will offer graduates access to mentoring and tailored graduate resources.
