Frank Sagnier commented, “SpecialEffect is a remarkable charity and I could not be more proud that Codemasters has been able to support their outstanding work over the past few years. When I first saw the smile on people’s faces who were able to enjoy playing games with their friends, I got truly inspired by SpecialEffect’s raison d’être and understood the profound impact of their tailor-made work on people’s lives. I am delighted and honoured to be a SpecialEffect Vice-President”.
