Supporting Twin Town
Twin Town was the brain child of STL MD Brendon Cross and not only did STL have a car in the event, it also provided 20 volunteers to help with the organisation over the May bank holiday weekend.
Twin Town Challenge involves cars costing less than £500 driving from Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, to Witney’s twin town of Le Touquet. During the weekend they drove around circuits at Silverstone and Abbeville and undertook some fun challenges like blind driving car boxing and car booty as well as a treasure hunt. There were also points for the best-dressed car and team, which provided some amazing decorations and outfits.
STL staff acted as marshals, fundraisers, minibus drivers, mechanics, scorers and generally managed the 500 people taking part in the event, both in the UK and in France.
The STL car, ‘Somewhere Rover the Rainbow’ took part in the challenges and successfully made it back to the UK for the farewell tea party hosted by Abbott Diabetes.
The Twin Town Challenge is on target to reach its £250,000 target following the auction of more than 40 of the Twin Town cars, an online auction and the amazing fund raising completed by the teams.
