About the event
Whether you’re a Twitch legend, a weekend-gamer, or can’t even remember where you left your Game Boy in the 90s, you will be making a huge difference.
If you love gaming and getting together with friends and family you can combine the two to raise vital funds to support people severely affected by mental illness.
Pick your favourite video game challenge, a FIFA tournament, capture the flag in COD or fastest finish on a Mario Kart level. Get your mates round or meet online and set your fundraising target.
Corrie is taking on the challenge:
"Mental health has always been very important for us. We all grew up playing video games and this was a great opportunity for us to show the positive effects of playing games while raising money for a great charity"
