Our Chosen Charities

As a non-profit group we donate any left over funds after events to our two chosen charities.


Special Effect is an organisation that seeks to help those who have challenges accessing gaming due to physical disabilities. They work with people to identify and use existing technologies and design new solutions that can help those individuals get the same pleasure as most of us do from the gaming world.


Hearing Dogs obtains, trains and homes Hearing Assistance dogs with those that would most benefit from a companion that can alert them to various aural queues that most of us take for granted. They Assist with audible alerts such as fire alarms, smoke alarms, mobile phone alerts etc. Not only do they assist with these alerts but they also provide real companionship as well.

Over 1000 raffle tickets gone already which is great.AND the discord alone now has more people in it than the capacity of the REAL event. (thanks, @Palantir for spotting that)T minus 2h41m ...
