Naomi House and Jacksplace are encouraging keen gamers to do what they love to raise money for them.

GAME ON, which is running for the whole of April, wants people to play an online game of their choice for as long as possible. 

The charity are challenging them to try and complete a 24 hour gaming marathon with friends and live stream it via the Twitch platform. 

They are then being asked to encourage viewers to donate to Naomi House and Jacksplace, via an online fundraising page. 

Connor Phillips, Fundraising Assistant at Naomi House & Jacksplace, said: 

“Gaming is for anyone and everyone and is extremely popular with people of all ages. Not everyone has the ability to run a marathon or climb a mountain, so we created an event that’s accessible for all abilities. 

Established online gaming group, Brutal Democracy, hosted a 24-hour marathon for Naomi House & Jacksplace at the end of 2019 and raised an incredible £2,000, so we know that there is an audience out there, ready to game for charity!"

With everyone staying in their home for more time at the moment, the charity say it is the perfect time for people to raise money from the comfort from your own house.

Anyone looking to get involved can find out more by visiting the Naomi House website.
