2017 24 Hour Charity Event Announcement

Our fundraiser in aid of Special Effect is happening this April. Get the info here

Gaming Nation UK are proud to announce that this years 2017 24 hour charity event will take place on Friday 21st April 2017. After a hiatus last year, we are back and plan to be bigger than ever with more giveaways, more games, more fun and more interaction than ever before. We raised nearly £2,000 in the first two events that we did and we hope to raise at least £2,000 this time around.

Chris & Sam, fuelled by adrenaline, excitement and probably one too many cups of coffee, will begin the event at 7pm on the Friday. The live twitch stream will be available for your viewing pleasure for the full 24 hours and with a whole host of games from action shooting games, horror games, driving games and strategy games being played, there should be something for everyone.

Our games list has now been revealed as well as some of the fantastic prizes we have to give away. Read the post here.

Of course the main reason we are doing this, is our affection and admiration for the fantastic team at special effect. For those of you who do not know who they are and what they do, they help people with disabilities enjoy video games. This, on the face of it may not seem like that much of a special thing but I emplore you to watch the videos below, and see for yourself the amazing work that they do, and the joy they bring to children and adults lives. Suddenly these people are able to play and join in the fun with their families, they get some of their independance back and it is an amazing rehabilitation tool.

The equipment needed is extremely specific to each person and tailored to their own needs, and this is why they need the donations, to keep making this solutions to get these people gaming again. Check out the videos below and their website and mark the date in your diaries :). Want to donate now? Scroll to the bottom or view this page.
