Most of you will be aware that I took part in this last year with a group of friends - I think we did very well, having raised over £1,250 for SKSP between us!
Since then, I have become a father, and Autumn has already visited Edinburgh Sick Kids - and they were excellent with her. I wanted to thank them, and what better way to show my appreciation than to take part again this year?
On to the challenge: Whilst I would love to spend 24 hours playing Minecraft, I decided to try an 'ABCs of Gaming' theme to make it a bit more interesting. I'll play at least half an hour of a game, starting with each letter of the alphabet on my XBox starting from 6am on Saturday and finishing 6am Sunday!
It may also be worth noting that my wife will be looking after a 7 month old baby (mostly) alone for the 24 hours - possibly more worthy of the money than my playing games, but nevermind... ;)
