SpecialEffect is an amazing charity that aims to put fun and inclusion back into the lives of those with physical disabilities by helping them play video games, using technology ranging from modified joypads to eye-control systems. Levelling the playing field has a profoundly positive impact on therapy, rehabilitation and confidence – and what’s more, they do all of this work free of charge.

Their annual GameBlast event has been likened to a Children in Need for gamers and is backed by big names in the industry including GAME, Twitch and FACEIT.

We’ll be doing our bit by streaming live to our Twitch channel continuously for 72-hours and are graciously asking our supporters to sponsor us. All donations received via our JustGiving page and our text number above will go straight to SpecialEffect, helping them to achieve their target of £150,000 and continue their awesome work.
