Amiqus to sponsor the Twin Town Challenge 2018 for Special Effect


Twin towns, 100 cars, 1 amazing weekend!

Amiqus are super-excited to be sponsoring this year's Twin Town Challenge event for Special Effect taking place on Spring Bank Holiday Weekend Friday 25-28 May 2018.

What is the Twin Town Challenge?

The Twin Town Challenge is a fun charity car rally. Teams buy a £500 banger and pimp their ride however they like. Then over Spring Bank Holiday weekend they take an epic road trip from Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire to Witney's twin town, Le Touquet in northern France. Along the way there'll be fun events, challenges and the occasional lap of a circuit before the main event to help everyone get into the spirit and meet up with fellow Twin Towner rivals. It's guaranteed to be tremendous fun and includes rubbing shoulders with celebrities, stoking team rivalries and having great fun. The big jamboree is in Le Touquet itself, where our French compatriots throw a street party extravagaza - it's awesome! Expect live bands, fine French food and flowing drinks to help toast a successful trip for all!

On return to Merry England, afternoon tea and an awards ceremony round off a fantastic, fun weekend. All in aid of a great cause and we can't wait, especially as we already have our very own Stig ;)

Supporting a unique charity

The Twin Town Challenge isn't just about a fun weekend. The primary objective is to raise money for a very brilliant charity: SpecialEffect. By using adaptive technology, they’re bringing a new lease of life to people with physical disabilities through communication, creativity and video games.

The one-to-one support that SpecialEffect provide is completely free. This ranges from the creation and loan of modified video game controllers, to the provision of eye-controlled computers for people with very severe disabilities. All of SpecialEffect's funding comes from donations and fundraising.

SpecialEffect offer support to people of all ages and with a wide range of physical disabilities. They take the time to understand the needs of each individual and tailor their solutions, helping them to do the things that they want to do in the way that's easiest for them.

To date the Twin Town Challenge has raised over £450,000 to support this fantastic cause and we hope that Twin Town 2018 will be the biggest yet!
