We have been taking part in a 24 hour gaming marathon for 6 years now and unfortunately, during the past year, we lost our friend, Scott "MadDog" Manderson, to cancer. Because of this, we decided to "go big" this year and organise our own charity event, securing Arcade Club as our venue, allowing members of the public to come and support us in person.
Scott battled cancer for 2 years, before finally passing away in May this year. He was a huge part of our online community and his bravery during his final years was nothing short of heroic. His outlook always remained positive and he was determined to carry on as normal, even during the final months.
Thanks to the enormous generousity of Andy and his team, we have been given access to the excellent Arcade Club as our venue for the duration of the 24 hours. Arcade Club is the largest video game arcade in the UK, with hundreds of arcade machines, all on free play. During the event, we will be hosting various raffles, contests and events, so come down and join in. The entry fee is £10 per day and the venue has it's own bar and food facilities, with very reasonable prices. More information can be found at www.arcadeclub.co.uk
