Take part in World Gaming Day

Leukaemia Care and Give Penny are behind the event, which they’re calling ‘an upgraded version of the traditional coffee morning, organised for charities’.

Participants can sign up to hold their gaming days online or in person, and the idea is that everyone who plays with you donates £10 – it’s that simple.

How you host the event is totally up to you. You can play in fancy dress and serve up drinks and tasty snacks – the aim is to bring everyone together for a fundraising coffee morning with a twist.

There are many ways to raise extra money during the event. You could request an extra £1 to play in a tournament or for players to change to a different game.

And with the option to stream live on your own channels and even accepting songs donations via Spotify, you can be as inventive as you wish!

We would love to see your videos and pictures. Remember to share them with us with the official hashtags:

World Gaming Day is for everyone, regardless of age, background or ability. Die-hard gamers can take part, but it’s also a chance for first time gamers to have a go. Just have fun while raising money for Pets As Therapy.

You can support us by selecting Press Start below. It’s your chance to pick up your gaming console and join your family or your mates while supporting Pets As Therapy in our mission to recruit more volunteers and therefore make more PAT visits.
