News tixfeatures

Gamers up and down the country took part in Gameblast this weekend, raising over £170k for the wonderful people at SpecialEffect.

Individuals, Teams and Companies including GAME took part in the event with marathon gaming sessions, livestreams and Auctions for some amazing items.

The sponsorship you raised through GameBlast16 will help SpecialEffec change the lives of many more people like Ben. It’ll let them visit people to find out exactly what they want to play, and what they need to play it. They’ll then match, modify or create equipment to lend to them, and give support so they can get the best out of it.

Your support is vital because SpecialEffect don’t charge for anything they do, and they don’t sell any equipment. SpecialEffect simply aim to do whatever it takes to raise the quality of life for everyone they work with.

Find out more how SpecialEffect are making a difference by visiting their YouTube channel that features the stories of Callum, Ajay, Becky and many others, whose gaming journeys have been kickstarted by your help. Check out the thank you video below too.

Well done everyone!!
