eZe-Talk Takes On ‘Top Gear’ Style Charity Rally

A team of employees from eZe-Talk, are taking on a charity challenge, which will see them driving from Newbury to Ireland completing ‘Top Gear’ style tasks along the way. In true ‘Top Gear’ style the drive will not be a straight forward one, with the teams being tasked with driving the route in a car purchased for less than £500.

The team, consists of three members – Mike Taitt, Steve Walsh and Mike Walsh – who have named themselves the Bajan Bandits and have purchased a 14 year old, 3 litre Jaguar S-Type SE complete with MOT, Tax and even a sat nav all for less than £500! We have also received support and sponsorship from other local businesses with Bare Bones Marketing from Middlewich designing their team logo, providing the artwork and pre- and post-PR support. Zero Signs in Crewe have produced the car decals and Elms & Elms in Cheadle have provided the team with t-shirts, complete with team logo. Jaguar Manchester Stratstones have given the car a health check and completed an oil service to make sure the car is ready for its journey.

At eZe-Talk we are familiar with finding innovative ways to raise money for charity with our recent launch of Fundraiser Telecom, which helps good causes raise funds by providing their supporters with low cost telecom services and products.

The eZe-Talk Bajan Bandits will join 30 other cars in the race to the finish line in Ireland all to raise money for two charities, Action Through Enterprise and Honeypot Children’s Charity.

Mike Taitt, Chief Executive here at eZe-Talk will be taking part in the challenge and comments: “We are really looking forward to taking part in the event and hopefully making it to the finish line with challenges and visits along the way to some iconic race tracks. It’s a great way to raise money for two fantastic charities and we look forward to meeting the other teams and seeing which cars we’re up against!”

The event, organised by Gamma, will be taking place on 17th September and will see the teams setting off for the 500 mile journey from Newbury with stops in Wolverhampton, Dublin and Co Wicklow.??????
