I think we are in the top five game clubs in the UK for charity fundraising and our May event is the Top five dedicated gaming charity events. We have stiff competition and may well be knocked off our perch as lots more charity gaming events are happening, which is awesome! We are likely one of the longest running charity events too.
A brief view of our fund raising history. (Our years run July – July) the majority comes from our main May charity day, and over the last two years from our 24 hour game a thon, supplements from our minor charity days and merchandise sales.
Our charity of the year 2017 and 2018 is now our permanent partner is Herefordshire Mind. It’s a great fit for us as I see us a community first, games night second and we aim to provide a cheap fun safe hobby for all.
