Gaming for Good! (12-26th February)

19th January 2022

We are super excited to be teaming up with youth homeless charities up and down the country for another year of Gaming for Good!

Gaming for Good exists to bring people together. We want you to have fun, connect with friends and enjoy this event with us! Along with that, we also hope to raise the funds we need to continue delivering vital services to homeless young people across Bristol and the South West. Check out our highlights from 2021 here.

So, it’s game on to #EndYouthHomelessness. Join 11 leading youth homelessness charities and gamers across the country for our Gaming Festival #GamingForGood!

Sign up here to get gaming – whether you’re a monopoly master or serious streamer, there’s something for everyone!
