Thank you to everyone who supported TwinTown16!
Over the May bank holiday, Bob Bradley of MD2MD and his brother Simon joined nearly a hundred other cars and nearly 500 business people from Witney and the Computer Games industry to participate in the Twin Towns Challenge in aid of the charity Special Effect.
It’s difficult to put into words how grateful we are to all the amazing people who made the 2016 Twin Town Challenge such an incredible success. Check out #TwinTown16 on Twitter and the TwinTown16 facebook group to get a feel for the spirit of the event. The key thing though was raising £250k+ to help create the ‘Special Effect’ illustrated in this video.
Special Effect CEO Dr Mick Donegan has always said that everyone who supports us is a member of the SpecialEffect team, and nothing epitomises this more than the wonderful journey we’ve been on this weekend.
Whether you made the 500 mile round trip in a £500 car or placed a winning bid in the equally epic auction… whether you were involved in sponsoring or were a member of one of the brilliant organising teams from Witney and LeTouquet… whether you kept us fed and entertained, or made sure we went the right way at roundabouts… whether you’re a colleague or friend who made a donation, or a family member who kept the home fires burning while we were all away having fun… you are all heroes and we really can’t thank you enough!
The staggering amount of money you have raised will help us to bring even more smiles to the faces of the amazing people we work with every day. Please do share this video far and wide in the proud knowledge that together we will be creating many more magic moments like this for a long time to come!
Key to the event tackling ‘fun’ challenges set by the organisers. The first of which was to get a ‘Star in the Car’ to do an interview for us! Watch below for us having fun with that.
And here’s a brief montage of us dressed as clowns (another challenge) and participating in some of the events and challenges in Witney, Blenheim, Silverstone, Le Touquet and Abbeville.
To our members who helped in this wonderful cause, many thanks for all your support and donation. Below is a photoroll and namecheck of those who pledged donations in exchange for their company logos in our MD2MD Car.
