New Years Honour for Hexagon MD
Brendon Cross, MD of Hexagon Business Centres, has been awarded the British Empire Medal in the New Year’s Honours list for ‘services to disabled people’. The British Empire Medal recognises the achievements and service of extraordinary people across the United Kingdom.
Brendon, who is also MD of STL Communications and Vice President of the charity SpecialEffect, is the founder and energy behind the Twin Town Challenge. The event, which sees cars costing £500 drive from Witney to Le Touquet for a weekend of fun challenges, was held in 2014 and 2016 and has already raised over £500,000 for SpecialEffect.
SpecialEffect gives people with physical disabilities access to technology to play games and interact with friends and family. Brendon’s support for the charity goes far beyond organising the Twin Town Challenge and has included bucket shaking and walking on fire as well as raising its profile with businesses, both locally in West Oxfordshire and in the communications industry.
