Hotbox Events Charity and Sponsorship
Hotbox Events Ltd works side-by-side with its sister company Hotbox Studios Ltd; the two organisations often come together for charity and sponsorship.
Amy O'Loughlin competing in the TransWales 2009
Throughout 2009 Hotbox Events has been a proud sponsor of Amy O'Loughlin. Amy has spent much of 2009 training to compete in the the Gore Bike Wear TransWales 2009 Mountain Bike Event which took place in Wales in August.
Hotbox first sponsored Amy O'Loughlin in 2007 as part of a four woman mountain bike team competing in the Nightrider12 event at Plymouth's Newnham Park; raising money for the Force Cancer Charity. Following a podium finish in the Nightrider12, Amy got back in touch in early 2009, this time training for TransWales.
All here at Hotbox would like to send huge congratulations to Amy for making it through TransWales 2009, let alone achieving a podium finish! You can read more about Amy's journey from the start line to the podium here

Camping Club Youth (CCY) National Youth Rally 2010

Jenny and Phil Larby trekking to Everest Base Camp
Hotbox Studios and Hotbox Events supplied online services for Jenny and Phil Larby as they raised money for IT equipment for Lakshmi Ashram (a school in North India) by trekking to Everest Base Camp.
Jenny and Phil trekked across the Nepal Himalaya, starting from Lukla (the highest place that motor vehicles can reach) at 2,800m, and following mountain trails and rope bridges for two weeks to Everest Base Camp at 5,300m. The pair walked back down to Lukla over three days. When their fellow trekkers flew home, Jenny and Phil visited the school itself in the Indian Himalaya; helping The Holt School in Wokingham to maintain a pen-friend link with the Ashram. This clip from Meridian News gives a little more info about the trek.
