Frontier Livestream raises over £40,000

It’s Christmaaaaaaaas and, for the fourth year running, our friends at Frontier Developments have rallied their amazing Elite Dangerous, Planet Coaster and Jurassic World communities in the annual Frontier Christmas livestream for SpecialEffect. This year, in what is one of the highlights of the SpecialEffect calendar, the livestream raised an incredible £44,000 and we can’t thank the team at Frontier and the communities enough.

The livestream featured the usual fun and frolics from the Frontier Stream Team, fantastic content featuring Frontier’s incredible games and interviews with our Ali and Baz and many of Frontier’s top streamers from all over the world. And our friends at Yogscast even staged their own Jingle Jam surprise by raiding the Frontier charity livestream with 16,000 of their viewers on Monday evening.

Huge, huge thanks to SpecialEffect Vice-President and Frontier CEO, David Braben, the Frontier Stream Team and the awesome Elite Dangerous, Planet Coaster and Jurassic World communities for another incredible fundraiser. Because of your generosity we’ll be able to reach many more disabled gamers, like Elite Dangerous Commander Mark who suffered a severe stroke earlier this year causing severe loss of function down his left hand side, throughout 2019. Thank you to everyone involved for being such amazing supporters of SpecialEffect.
