On 8th August we once again rallied the troops for a spot of fundraising for our favourite charity Special Effect. This time the activity involved ‘foot golf’; kicking a football around the holes of the Heythrop Golf Course! The highly entertaining networking event was enjoyed by all. Special thanks go to the M Group and STL Comms for organising it for everyone.
As you may already know, we are a Witney business and we now have two sites in the old market town; one in the heart of Witney, just off the High Street, and our new site is on the Windrush Industrial Park in west Witney.
We’re thrilled to be expanding our operation to include the new site so that we can store more critical parts for our customers and continue to deliver an exceptional service to them.
On Saturday 14th July we took part in the Witney Carnival parade to raise awareness of SpecialEffect charity with our car from the TwinTown18 Witney to Le Touquet challenge. We also hosted a fundraising stand at the carnival itself. Thank you to everyone who came down to see us and the other supporters of the event.
With the TwinTown18 weekend fundraiser behind us our Managing Director Francis has been left with a strong impression of how important SpecialEffect Charity is to the people who are supported by the SpecialEffect team. This week Francis visited their HQ to speak with Dr Mick Donegan and find out more about how the funds raised at TwinTown18 will help over the next 12 months.
Ind-Tech are committed to helping SpecialEffect Charity moving forward and we’re generating lots of ideas for how to we continue to fundraise over the next year. If you haven’t heard of SpecialEffect and the amazing work they do with people with physical disabilities and enhancing their lives through gaming, please visit their website to find out more.
May 2018 marked the first year that Ind-Tech have taken part in the Twin Town 2018 Challenge.
The Twin Town Challenge is a fun charity car rally. We bought a £500 banger and pimped our ride in a theme called Apocalypse Cow. Then over Spring Bank Holiday weekend we embarked on an epic road trip.
The route goes from Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire to Witney’s twin town, Le Touquet in northern France. Along the way we took on challenges and the occasional lap of a circuit.
The Twin Town 2018 Challenge wasn’t just about a fun weekend. The primary objective was 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.
To date the Twin Town Challenge has raised over £450,000 to support this fantastic cause.
We haven’t finished fundraising yet but so far we have raised several thousand pounds and we plan to continue as we haven’t sold our car yet.
Our next stop is Witney Carnival where you’ll find us with our car – come along and say Hi!

Our Directors, Francis and Gavin, got to meet the Mayor of Witney at the start of the TwinTown18 weekender in May. It was an honour for them to meet Brenda Churchill, who was happy to pose for photos with our fancy-dress clad TwinTown team before they set off to Le Touquet, France, to raise money for local gaming charity Special Effect.
