The HiQ network has had a fantastic year throughout 2014. The continued support in store and online has enabled HiQ to bring you promotions such as ‘Monster Tyre Sale’, ‘Massive MOT Sale’ and ‘Be Cool for School’ . Not only did a wide variety of promotions help to keep you informed and more importantly, on the road, it also made possible the growth in community on our social media pages. During the year HiQ has also ran a variety of competitions online to bring you fantastic prizes including the seasonal hamper as part of the ‘Your 3 Summer Must Haves’ competition and the winter driving essentials pack for ‘Driving Home for Christmas’. Other highlights include:

HiQ’s sponsorship of the British Touring Car Championship continued to go from strength to strength with driving star Rob Austin joining HiQ Online as an official blogger, so keep an eye out for future blog posts on Rob’s personal insight throughout his BTCC career. You can be sure HiQ will be offering online fans plenty of opportunities to win tickets for the 2015 BTCC season so like and follow HiQ on Facebook and Twitter.

As official partners with TyreSafe, the leading organisation in tyre safety, HiQ helped to bring the attention of vital tyre checks, such as the 20p test and the tyre pressure checks to thousands during 2014.

October also featured HiQ Online and HiQ Centre’s splashed with pink in order to raise donations for Breast Cancer Care. A variety of activities were held by individual centre’s from hair waxing events to weight loss challenges in order to raise charity donations. The addition of donations made through HiQ online MOT bookings also boosted HiQ to closing the gap on the £120,000 donation target.

To thank all of HiQ’s visitor both online and in store, there are now 5 chances to win £100 worth of Love2shop vouchers!

Congratulations to our winners:

Vicki Macdonald - "My biggest achievement this year was finally getting to snorkel with the Turtles in Barbados, absolutely amazing, another one off my to do list"

Bob Clark - "Organising our own trip to the Harz Mountains by train - 22 in all - ran like clockwork (or electric) except for a steam train that broke down in the Harz blocking our train and resulting to a minor change of plan"

Isabell Stewart - "Getting my first nucleus of bees and growing them into a viable colony for the winter - I hope. At least they're still alive at the moment."

Andrea Upton - "Walking to the top of Snowdon, I am not that fit and didnt think I would make it but determination kept me going!"

Ellie Mendes - "I learned how to ride a motorbike after years and years of being too scared to get on one. I wouldn't say that I'm confident enough to go on the motorway but it's a great feeling!"
