Witney twin town challengers’ total now tops £10,000
7:40am Monday 2nd June 2014 in News
Organisers of the Twin Town Challenge have revealed that more than £100,000 was raised by the charity event.
It saw 50 teams driving cars worth £500 or less travel from Witney to its twin town in France, Le Touquet.
On the way, drivers visited racetracks and completed tasks.
The final £9,000 which pushed fundraisers past the milestone was made at an auction of the cars used in the challenge.
Chief organiser Brendon Cross said: “I’m the proud owner of a Rover 216 Coupe from one of the teams now as well. I could not resist it.”
Money raised will go to SpecialEffect, based in Charlbury, which adapts video games systems for people with physical disabilities.
