We’re underway – follow #sksp 2015 live

The Sick Kids Save Point charity gaming marathon is away!



Our brave gamers are updating us with what they’re playing via our facebook page or on twitter using the #sksp hashtag.

Follow them and show your support with words of encouragement and donations to their fundraising, all of which will help sick children and their families.

Some participants are live streaming their events. For example Alex Sievewright here:

A word of warning: we cannot be held responsible for mature content or naughty words that might come out of tired gamers’ mouths. It’s all in a good cause!

Early adopters

Although Sick Kids Save Point officially gets underway this coming weekend, some people are forced to shift their marathon due to outside commitments.

Neil Gow undertook his marathon a week early, and played only children’s games.

“Thanks to everyone for their encouragement and support, it’s been a long couple of days but thoroughly worthwhile,” he said, after raising an incredible £554.30 for the Sick Kids Friends foundation.

Today our Welsh champion Matthew Maloney has kicked off his 36 hour test, which has already seen some Dying Light and Sleeping Dogs –  we hope he doesn’t sleep when the light really does die!
