Our sponsors have been incredibly generous and have donated well over £1000 in prizes and just under £1000 in services. We have raised £500 in total this year from our 3 mini charity days and our 24 hour game-a-thon. We are on target to smash our £1000 target for Herefordshire Mind.

Introducing our star prize and sponsor!

**Trumpet noises** Introducing our golden Sponsor and star prizes Basically Wooden.

In addition to helping in our secret special project, Andrew and Sue from Basically Wooden, which is a Hereford based company making high quality board game accessories, from organisers to full boxes to card and token holders to make your life easier. They really care about their product and are wonderful people.

They have offered not 1 but 3 dice towers, a pair of card trays and token holders which clip together (magnets) and one of the latest products a combined card and token holder, scooped for easy access and some where to play your hand of cards for easy viewing and access. Perfect for those with mobility issues or dyspraxics like me who end up with hand fatigue. (The photo shows a built one which is mine, two flat packed ones are actually included)

These accessories really help keeping games flowing, the card holders can serve as a great first player marker as you pass the deck of event cards and you place it on the table with a satisfying clunk.

That’s not all. They have also provided a £25 gift voucher which covers most of their game inserts and accessories.

There are great items, but can be a luxury so this is a perfect chance to make your gaming betterer.

Please please share the event and my posts we need all the publicity we can get, our prize pool is worth well over £1000 and we’ve had nearly £1000 of free services.
