The Access Sport team are delighted to be one of ten 2016 GamesAid recipients, after a record breaking £954,000 was raised for charity by the gaming community!

GamesAid is the umbrella charity representing the UK Gaming Industry, seeking to support smaller charities who help disadvantaged and disabled children and young people. Over the course of the year, members of the gaming industry get stuck into a whole host of fantastic fundraising events. The money is then pooled together ready to be distributed between the shortlisted charities each September.

This year we were delighted to be invited to the Cheque Giving Ceremony held at Warner House, joined by the other successful charities; Accuro, Action for Kids, Aidis Trust, Blackpool Carers Centre, The Clock Tower Sanctuary, LifeLites, MAPS, Solving Kids' Cancer, and Special Effect!

In the weeks leading up to the ceremony, GamesAid members were invited to vote for one of the long listed charities.

We'd like to say a very special thank you to everyone that voted for Access Sport, in particular SEGA whose support has been instrumental in helping us continue our work transforming young lives through sport.
