Thank you for your weekend support!

Another crazy, events-packed weekend of outstanding supporter supremeness! Here goes…

Kicking off was JoRoSaR’s Pub Quiz which’ll be happening on the first and third Fridays, 7pm UK time every month for the rest of year; it's a joint fundraiser with LOROS & Mermaids. Everyone is welcome so pop it in your calendar if you love a quiz (Ali on our team could even answer some of the questions!).

Friday into Saturday also saw Elite: Dangerous Commander Przemek Malacha raise a stratospheric £700 with his Roots_rat 24 hr livestream celebrating one year as a Twitch partner; it was a hoot with guests, chat and gaming galore.

Right across the weekend saw the fantastic Crayta Game Jam organised by our wonderful Ambassador Nat Griffith. Crayta very kindly donated for every person taking part, and the event raised $1600!

BatsFamGaming also successfully completed his gruelling 24hr Fall Guys livestream; he was exhausted but way to go BatsFam!

The indomitable Nadine from nDreams finally completed her Ride London v-cycle challenge on Saturday, having been thwarted so many times because of so much personal heartbreak to contend with. Read her moving story here. Absolutely incredible Nadine; thank you so much.

Jon Jones of Audiomotion also completed his virtual Ride London, doing 11 x 9 mile laps, including going up the unrelenting Box Hill! Jon actually ended up doing an impressive 108 miles!

And another wonderful supporter taking the strain was Adam Forder of Moorcrofts LLP who have chosen SpecialEffect as their Charity Of The Year. Adam took on the insane challenge of lifting 100 tonnes during one single day – that’s the equivalent of a Boeing 757-200 or a blue whale to you and me! Total raised so far on top of the 100 tonne is over £1400! A gargantuan effort.

And last but by no means least was the wonderful Elaine Grant, who successfully completed the 12-hour, overnight Europe's Toughest Mudder virtual event. Check out her updates to find out just how tough that was!!!

Thank you SO much to every single one of these fundraisers; you do us proud every single time and we cannot even begin to tell you how very, very much we appreciate it.
