THANK YOU for another riotous fundraising weekend

You amazing people floored us again last weekend with your fundraising talents and ingenuity!

Leading us into the busy weekend was Cokethorpe Junior School’s Charity Week, a wonderful local Witney school organising a week-full of socially-distanced fun and activities... but more news on that coming soon! 

Then on Friday, Sharon Richards treated viewers to a 12-hour Twitch Art Livestream and played Marbles, boldly and beautifully flying the SpecialEffect flag and raising vital funds. And then the weekend began! Friday night saw our friend and wonderful supporter Kit Harrison of Frontier Developments kick off his fourth 24-hr Grand Tour livestream which included Destiny 2, Resident Evil 3, Overwatch, League of Legends, Tabletop Simulator and many more - quite a roster! So far his fundraising is over £450, taking all four Grand Tour’s to a grand total of well over £2200!

Early on Saturday at Nick, Rich, George, Tom and Ryan Merrell AKA Live With Honor kicked off their Dota2 19-hour livestream, completing it in style and raising over £600. Meanwhile, Rockstar North’s Jim Jagger broke through the £3000 barrier with his daily 5km Groundhog Day runs throughout the month of June, leading up to the finale at our Virtual 10k event.

And what about incredible YouTuber Jack Frags’ phenomenal fundraiser? It's raised over $50,000! Staggering!

And then, THEN, there was Samuel and his dad John

Thank you SO much to everyone who took part or donated or helped in ANY way to these fantastic events over the weekend. We salute you!
