A big GameBlast18 thank you!

Unbelievable! Thank you SO much for battling sleep, playing games, taking on eye-watering forfeits, laughing a lot, and raising OVER £200,000 so far to level the playing field for people with disabilities! This means so much to us.

We’ve one final ask of you - please take a couple of moments to accept this video thank you from our CEO Dr Mick Donegan, and meet Chase. Your GameBlasting will change the lives of so many people just like him.

With the money you’ve raised through GameBlast18 we’ll be able to keep our specialist teams on the road and help even more people across the UK to experience the magic and inclusion of video games, often for the first time.

It’ll also mean we can answer more enquiries from around the world about accessible gaming, and work more closely with developers in making their games more accessible by everyone.

Thanks again to our brilliant partners Jagex, GAME, Multiplay Events, Twitch, Ukie and Insert Coin. You've brought the event to life and backed it in such an incredible way. Thanks also to all the other fantastic companies and gaming communities who stepped up to the GameBlast plate with such aplomb – so many of you! You can’t imagine what a huge boost you’ve given to us and the many hundreds of people with disabilities you’ll be helping over the coming year. Fantastic work!

Thank you again, and see you during 24-24 February next year for GameBlast19!
