Fantastic Charity Weekend in Witney!

May 8, 2019

Whitley Stimpson were delighted to have been involved in two incredible charity events over the May Day weekend.

The first event kicked off on Friday with the ‘Tales from the Tap’ sporting lunch which marked exactly one year until the 2020 Twin Town Challenge, which raises money for SpecialEffect, a charity which uses video games and technology to enhance the quality of life of people with disabilities. Ex England footballer Stuart Pearce was in conversation with sports journalist and SpecialEffect Vice President Jim Rosenthal and even the non-football fans thoroughly enjoyed their entertaining stories! 

Nick Streeter from SpecialEffect commented: 

Thank you to Wychwood Brewery and all our generous guests, including Whitley Stimpson, for their generous support and for making Friday such a memorable day. Early indications are that the event has raised approximately £10,000! We can’t thank everybody who attended enough for their help as we seek to help more people who need us.

The second event of the weekend was The Witney Beer Festival organised by Witney Round Table, which began on Saturday 4th May at St Mary’s church. As Whitley Stimpson were the main sponsors, the Witney office also attended the opening evening the night before along with other local businesses that supported the event.

Those who attended the festival enjoyed consuming the 60+ beers and ciders that were available to choose from, along with the great atmosphere and live music. The event was a huge success and raised an amazing amount of money for local charities and good causes. Laura Adkins, a director of Whitley Stimpson added:

“We are very proud to have sponsored the 8th Annual Witney Beer Festival. Whitley Stimpson firmly believes in supporting the local community and this event truly captured this, as well as being great fun!”

Witney Round Table Chairman Neil Tanner said:

On behalf of Witney Round Table I would like to say thank you again to everyone who attended the 8th Witney Beer Festival. We had another really successful year with over £10,000 raised for local charities and good causes. A special mention to our main sponsors Whitley Stimpson, along with all of our sponsors and supporters who help make this unique Witney event the success it is.

The Witney Beer Festival is a unique event to publicise your company. If any other local businesses are interested then please contact Witney Round Table.
