Heralded as ‘the best reason to game ever’, the charity’s GameBlast weekend will see hundreds of gamers take on huge range of sponsored gaming-themed challenges over the three days including marathon livestreams, speed runs, esports tournaments and board games sessions.

The event has raised over £1M over the last decade, enabling the charity to help people all over the world to enjoy video games and access inclusion to the very best of their abilities.

SpecialEffect’s COO Tom Donegan said, “GameBlast is very close to our hearts because it reflects the very essence of what we do: gamers coming together to help their fellow gamers. It's always a really feel-good weekend and we can’t wait to see the variety of streams and challenges our amazing supporters come up with this year to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the event!”
