Shockingly amazing hallowe'en support!

A huge shout out to everyone who made Hallowe'en such a frighteningly fantastic weekend. So many streamers and supporters rallied to the creepy cause and absolutely smashed it, raising over £6,500 in the process!

Starting in style on Friday was Hangar9’s Hallowe'en Pub Quiz which raised a stonking £400! Then The Mutiny Crew took on their whopping 30 hour relay stream with ten streamers including Bekzness, who was hilariously scared out of her wits playing Resident Evil 7. Axcessgaming brought the stream to a close and raided fellow Hallowe’en charity streamer Raeis, giving him a welcome boost and catching him slap bang in the middle of retching his way through a dead fish flavoured jelly bean! For a donation of £5 you got to choose what disgusting (or pleasant!) flavour he had to endure. As he hit the end of his stream, he had to eat a vomit flavour bean before celebrating with a well-earned beer! Absolute superstar, well done!

Meanwhile ApesOnFire was completing her eight hour Scary Livestream - raising over £680! - and K1NGJ1M’s 12 hour Hallowe'en stream was in full swing, smashing his £200 target. 

TwistyShape’s annual 24 hour Hallowe'en Livestream brought us fun, costumes and madness, and by surpassing his £2,000 goal means he has to say goodbye to his rather impressive beard!

Hot on the heels of last weekend’s World Esports Day, Vulpine Esports continued their fundraising with another Saturday night livestream, increasing their total to £500. Brilliant! 

And speaking of costumes, Jack Davies completed his half marathon dressed as Kermit the frog and smashed his target dressed as a jolly big green thing, genuinely hopping the last four miles after picking up an injury.

A very special thank you goes to 11 year-old Summer. Her father, Jamie, works for Ripstone Games who completed an amazing staff One Special Challenge for us recently. Inspired by this she put together a Halloween Hamper with her own savings and raffled it to raise a fantastic £335! Absolutely fantastic - thank you SO much Summer!

Bringing the weekend to a close in the best way possible was PartWelsh’s fabulous monthly Pub Quiz. EA DICE brothers Adam & Lee do us proud and raised a whopping £1160, taking their lockdown fundraising total to around £13,000. Catch the next quiz on Sun 29 November at 8pm

Thank you again to our Hallowe’en Heroes. We simply couldn't do what we do without your support.
