Shropshire's Tech Heroes Become Super Heroes for Charity

  • 1st May 2018
  • Six Ticks Limited

The time. 10am.

The place. The West Midlands Showground, Shrewsbury, Shropshire.

The Challenge. A 5K obstacle course.

Four intrepid web designers line up in lycra and superhero masks to take on the challenge of their lifetime.

The Six Ticks Invincibles vs Some Really Big Inflatables

Six Ticks are used to being heroes of tech. We spend our day fighting against a world full of overpriced websites and terrible coding, providing superhero tech to businesses of all sizes.

But the challenge we faced last weekend was different. Bigger than anything we could have ever imagined.

Director Ian had to be pried away from his laptop.

Sales Director Steff had to put down her coffee.

And run...

...On a Saturday!

Standing between us and the safe haven of coffee and laptops… were 5 kilometres and several oversized inflatable obstacles.

Against such insurmountable odds, how could the Six Ticks team ever survive?

But this was for charity, so there was only one thing to do...


We climbed, jumped, slid, ran… and quite often walked (but in a heroic way of course), our way around the 5K obstacle course in support of local Shropshire and North Powys charity Severn Hospice.

We even had time to stop and pose with our favourite obstacle… a giant inflatable slide which was sponsored by none other than the Six Ticks team!

And... We made it!

It was a great day out and we'll be sure to dust off our capes again for next year's event in support of an amazing Shropshire charity that makes a difference to so many people in the region.

Website Design for Charity

On Saturdays Six Ticks might spend their days wearing lycra and clambering across oversized obstacles for charity, but by day we are just ordinary folks with a big mission. We create incredible websites and IT for small businesses and charities across the world.

We believe that all charities deserve professional web development and CRM systems and we also provide progressive web apps (PWAs) and mobile apps for charities of all sizes. Take a look at our new charity division page for more information.
