What connects mountains, streams and a pub quiz?

You, of course, and your phenomenal weekend of fundraising!

Friday saw GAME Digital's Andy Dopson and superfit-as-a-fiddle Paul Scarlet scale the final peak of their astonishing Five Peaks in Four Days Challenge - Snowdon, Scafell Pike, Ben Nevis, Suilven and Ben Macdui. Oh, and that included 750 miles of inter-peak driving between them. Utterly incredible.

Just as their gruelling feat was ending, RTUK kicked off their 12-hour online community meet-up with a packed schedule hosted through Twitter & Discord, raising funds through ticket sales via JustGiving. Our very own Becky joined the event on Discord, hosting a SpecialEffect stand in-game using Animal Crossing.

Hot on RTUK’s heels were The Bedroom Monarchs who spent Sunday going through all the raids and Raid Lair from Destiny 1 and 2, with entertainment, stretch goals, banter and a lot of fun across the day. They raised a fantastic amount and say it’s for ‘a charity close to their hearts’. Thank you so much guys, brilliant job!

This took us nicely into what has become a glorious monthly feature of the Freeman Brothers' Pub Quiz. Adam and Lee quiz up a storm and have again raised a phenomenal amount - almost £1400 and counting! PartWelsh streams every lunchtime too; a really welcoming, gentle, chatty stream.

We simply can’t thank everyone enough. Your brilliant support will help so many people with disabilities to enjoy a better quality of life.
