United Kingdom – Colleagues from John Henry Group held an inaugural memorial clay pigeon shoot on Saturday (February 6, 2016), in memory of a former employee who tragically died in a car accident last year.
John Henry Group IT Manager James Carson died in a car crash near Huntingdon in March 2015 on his way to work, after his car left the road.
James was a hugely popular person at the John Henry Group and is sorely missed by his colleagues, who were also his very close friends

James’ friends kicked off the first James Carson Masters this year and plan to hold the event annualy in his memory – as James was fan of clay pigeon and game shooting.
This year’s event was won by Paul Mead, from John Henry Group’s sister company WFL, who beat eight other competitors to capture the title of “Top Gun”.
Pat Henry, company director – whose son Euan Henry also won the team prize with one of John Henry Group’s project managers, Ben Foot – said a shooting tournament was a fitting tribute to remember James.
Pat said: “James was a hugely popular person at the John Henry Group and is sorely missed by his colleagues, who were also his very close friends.”
“I am sure James would have been very proud to have a trophy with his name on as he was a keen fan of clay pigeon shooting and would often shoot with his friends from the business.
“We look forward to continuing the James Carson Masters in 2017, in his memory.”
