Fun raising money for a fantastic charity in a £500 car

If 2016 is your year to do something out of the ordinary, meeting new people and all for an amazing cause then The Twin Town Challenge 2016 is for you!

Late May bank holiday 2014, 50 cars costing less than £500 departed from Cornbury Park, Witney,UK to travel to its twin town of Le Touquet, France and in doing so raised £130,000 for SpecialEffect. The Twin Town Challenge is the brainchild of Brendon Cross, MD of STL Communications and Vice President of Special Effect, and he’s doing it all again this year, only this time taking 100 cars.

Brendon tells us why he is organising a second Twin Town Challenge.

“Obviously I want to raise a huge sum of money for SpecialEffect to enable them help even more people with disabilities to join in with video games, but it is also because so many of the TTC14 participants had so much fun raising money for charity that they wanted to do it all again. It seemed logical to take twice as many cars and to raise twice as much money! Our fundraising target for TTC16 is £250,000 and the good news is that our very generous sponsors have covered the cost of the event, so every penny (and euro!) raised by the teams goes straight to SpecialEffect.”

His Mum Jo would like to find some more motivating activities for Kit. He loves racing cars and watches his younger brother play.
