Thanks Gaming 2014: Least Ultimate Edition

Final update: Thanks Gaming Day 2014 raised £3,359.49 for Yorkhill Children’s Charity

ThanksGaming is a Glasgow based fundraising team, and we play gaming marathons to raise money for good causes. You can help us!

This is the first year of ThanksGaming, and we will be playing games for 24 hours non stop (not as easy as it sounds!) to raise money for Yorkhill Hopsital. I want to help recognise the great things they do and support their hard working team.

This year, the event is Thanks Gaming 2014: Least Ultimate Edition, where the theme (for those brave enough to attempt it) is the worst games of all time! Can we survive 24 hours, with no sleep, no rest and nothing but awful, awful games?

Our cause this year is Yorkhill Children’s Charity, which provides and supports excellence in paediatric, obstetric and neonatal healthcare enhancing the treatment, care and wellbeing of children and their families through The Royal Hospital for Sick Children at Yorkhill and other hospital and community based services.

So how can you help? Well, you can take part!
