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 to the lives of people severely affected by mental illness.

If you love gaming and getting together with friends and family you can combine the two while raising 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 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"

Register your interest in this challenge and we will be in touch to let you know how you can get involved with helpful tips and info on how to set up your Gaming Get Together.
