Will he be Burnt out or in Paradise?

One of our fundraisers, Wayne (aka ‘jay0097’ on the PSN) will be attempting an impressive target during his marathon. A self confessed Burnout Paradise addict, Wayne claims he can get all 500 challenges in the 24 hours. He’ll have to delete his exisisting save, but, he says
“It’s for the kids… I am getting support from a few of my online friends from around the world. All outstanding players of the game … I have met the most compulsive Burnout players in the world ….ie me. In fact, i have done this before but not for charity – and i lasted 36 hours straight of Burnout .And yes you guessed it i was Burnt out by the end of it lol …”

To sponsor Wayne in this, visit his fundraising page and give what you can. You can follow his progress on the Official Playstation Forums, where Wayne will be letting us know how he’s getting on. See you in Paradise Waye!

Sick Kids thanks codemasters

“Spending time in hospital can be very difficult for our young patients. Being away from their family and friends they can feel isolated and very bored. On behalf of the Sick Kids Hospital huge thanks to Codemasters for their generous donation of two DS and Bella Sara games. These will be greatly appreciated by the wards and will help to make our patients time spent in hospital that little bit better.”
Ishbel Proctor, Play Specialist Coordinator, Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Edinburgh

I want to hold your hand…

Its getting too exciting! Nearly a week to go before we lose control of our thumbs. Gamer friend Dan has donated a brand new copy of Beatles Rock Band for PS3 to add to our list of prizes!
We now have so many prizes it looks like we’ll definitely be auctioning off some at the end of it all, which means yet more money to add to the growing total raised for the Sick Kids Friends Foundation.

Codemasters support!


We’re thrilled to announce that, in support of Sick Kids Save Point, games giant codemasters have donated 2 brand new DS Lites with Bella Sara games to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children. Hopefully these will be enjoyed by patients for a long time. Thanks Codemasters!
