[Event] GameBlast16 (26 - 28th February - Online)

altGameBlast16 is a charity event run by you! Yes you! Calling all internet streamers and players – gamers' charity Special Effect want you to join up with them between 26-28 February to help raise money for gamers with disabilities. They supply people with the equipment and means so they can do what we take for granted every time we switch on our consoles. No one deserves to be excluded in our fantastic hobby and that is what Special Effect are trying to achieve – accessible fun for all.

If this has peaked your curiosity head over to their website and check out how you can help and have fun all the while making others smile. Even if it is just helping by chucking in a few quid or doing a full blown event of your own, every penny raised goes towards making people that little bit happier. 


Over the course of the weekend, a whopping £175k was raised for the cause, beating their previous year of £120k.
