Play games to help hospices

Naomi House & Jacksplace, hospices for children and young adults, have announced their first virtual event: Game On.


The event, which people can take part in from the comfort of their own home, involves participants playing any game of their choice for as long as possible to raise money for the hospices via sponsorship fundraising.


From 1st to 3rd March, gamers across the south are invited to battle it out with their friends and family, either online or around the dining table, to raise money for life-limited and life-threatened children and young adults. All types of games can be played, including card games, games of Monopoly or rounds of charades – this event is truly for everyone and it only costs £5 to enter.

Avid online gamers are also given the option to complete a 24 hour gaming marathon online with friends, using the live streaming service, Twitch.
