Art auction provides massive £30k boost

Death of the Joker pictureWe're indebted to everyone involved in running the London Games Festival Games Art Charity Auction, which has raised over £30,000.

Dozens of video game concept artworks (like The Death of the Joker, left), originally exhibited at London City Hall, were auctioned to help people with disabilities to play computer games.

Huge thanks to London Games Festival Director Kirsty Payne, Nadia Lawlor and all the team at UKIE, all the great people who have created and donated the art, and of course the people who've made bids! We also need to thank Gary Winter at the Producers who, like all involved, has been fantastic.

"The auction has been a game-changer for us," said charity boss Dr Mick Donegan. "The money will allow us to help the ever-increasing number of people who are contacting us, wanting to get back on a level playing field with their friends and families. I can't thank Kirsty and her team enough - we realise what a tremendous amount of time and effort has been put into making this possible."
