Lucky for some – sign up for SKSP 8

Ready for Sick Kids Save Point 8? Are you feeling lucky, punk? Prepare for Friday the 13th


The country’s original and best gaming marathon returns at a crucial time for the charity.

Most people end up in hospital because of some pretty bad luck, but thanks to the work of the Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity, kids from all over the country get extra comforts and support to make the experience easier.

After it moves to a new state-of-the-art hospital early next year, the Royal Hospital for Sick Children the hospital will now be called The Royal Hospital for Children and Young People.

This is because it is being expanded to do more work with mental health and to support young people as they transition from children’s services to adult services.

110,000 babies, children and young people from all across Scotland will be helped by the charity.

It’s only right then that the charity changes its name to reflect this, so the Sick Kids Friends Foundation is now called Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity.


To help spread the luck on Friday the 13th of October, sign up to take part in our gaming marathon to raise vital funds for the charity. Video games, board games, role-playing games, anything goes for a 24 hour challenge you can face alone or with friends.

Under 18? No problem, gather your classmates or family around and do the 24 hours between you, tag teaming it when the going gets tough.
