Huge thanks for your fabulous fundraising

Once again, we’re absolutely blown away by all the wonderful activities and events that you’ve been up to in the last few days, spreading the word about our work and raising much appreciated funds!

The sky was the limit for Vicky, who's GameBlast skydive was delayed firstly due to the weather and then COVID-19, but this weekend she was finally able to take to the skies and raised over £800! Thanks Vicky!

We love a good stream here, and there have been some amazing ones over the last week. The fab Team Elite Dragons did a marvellous job completing 24 hours of Spa while raising over double their initial target, topping out at over £1000. Thanks so much guys! Then Robert "Sirius” Wolf delivered an entertaining 12 hours of adventure on the high seas this Saturday, raising over £1010 while playing Sea of Thieves fully in character as Captain Jack Sparrow.

Team Fortuitous also took to their Twitch channels to run a 24 hour stream to complete legendary game campaigns where they raised over £400, Amazing stuff guys, thanks so much!

This weekend also saw the amazing Zane reach 250km on his Lockdown Challenge, which means he now gets to plan for his Gameathon. That's great going Zane, your determination is such an inspiration.

And finally last but by no means least, HUGE thanks the team and everyone that was involved with the Hacking with Swift: Live 2020 event which raised whopping $38,000 for us. What?! We're speechless!

Thanks so much to everyone who took part, got involved or donated in every event. You're all part of the family and we’re SO grateful to you all!
