Story

Neil O'Regan, Managing Director at Shawcity, became an ambassador for SpecialEffect in 2013 as soon as he saw how effectively their work builds confidence, helps rehabilitation and, above all, promotes inclusion. The charity's work enables those with physical disabilities to access computing and gaming.

Neil, Mark, Ben and Chris are all taking part in the Twin Town 18 Challenge as 'The B Team', in homage to the 80s classic series 'The A Team'. 

Here's The B Team's story:

In 2018, a crap commando unit was sent to a pub in Faringdon for crimes against fashion that they definitely did commit.

These men promptly escaped - in the coolest Citroen Picasso the world has ever seen - to the Oxfordshire countryside...

Today, still haunted by warm beer memories, they survive as soldiers of misfortune.

If you get lost in France, if no one else will have a beer with you and if you can find them, maybe you can hire The B Team.

The guys will head to France alongside 99 other cars, completing a series of challenges en route, to raise valuable funds to help SpecialEffect continue their incredible work.

When you see the effect of someone being able to communicate by themselves or join in a game with their friends for the first time, hopefully you'll be inspired to help The B Team raise funds. Check out SpecialEffect's website through their link below to meet some of the people they've been able to support and, in doing so, profoundly changed their lives for the better. Thank you.
