Feb 25, 2022

Thank you for GameBlasting!

You did it! You game-playing, sleep-battling wonderful, wonderful GameBlasters came together yet again to raise a total that’s currently pushing over £190,000! It’s a stunning sum that’s all the more appreciated in these tough times, and you have the heartfelt grateful thanks of EVERYONE in the team here at SpecialEffect.

It was a truly joyous and community-infused festival of gaming, and we really appreciate the huge amount time and effort you’ve given to run your streams and events. The results will make an a massive difference: you’ll be gifting priceless inclusion and a better quality of life for so many people of all ages who need our help, and you’ll have enabled us to offer more inspiring ways to make video games accessible for people all around the world.

In short, you’ve just helped thousands more people with physical disabilities to discover the magic of video games. Magnificent work!
