Swindon and District Wargames 24 Hour Challenge

Thanks for visiting the Swindon and District Wargames Club 24 Hour Challenge team fundraising page.

On 29th and 30th October 2016, the members of SAD Wargames will be running a marathon 24 hour gaming session in support of 'Combat Stress' and 'Prospect Hospice'.

We chose to support these two charities as they both support people at the most difficult times in their lives.

Combat Stress

Many members of our club are ex-service personel and are very much the lucky ones. They have a great group of supportive friends and a hobby that they love.

Some members of the armed services aren't so lucky. They leave the services with scars few others can recognise or understand and find themselves very much alone.

Combat Stress works to help those who have fallen, not in battle, but in the aftermath. They seek to provide counselling and support for those with PTSD to allow them to lead the happy, healthy lives most of us take for granted.

Prospect Hospice

It is a sad fact of life that we will all one day pass on. For some it will be sudden, for others it will be a long process where small comforts can mean a lot.

Prospect Hospice seeks to provide that comfort to patients in their final days by providing excellent medical care, coupled with kindness and dignity to ensure that those facing the end of their lives will be able to do so as comfortably as possible.

The Day

Saturday 29th/ Sunday 30th October

Challenge starts at 9am.

Doors open to public at 10am Saturday.

Painting competitions.

Midnight Wargames quiz.

And yes, we're also doing this on the day the clocks change, so it'll actually be 25 hours courtesy of day light saving time!

Remember: Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never share them with anyone or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. They'll make sure Gift Aid (an additional 25%) is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, too. That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.
