Gaming for Charity

Gaming events from challenges to marathon events are a great way for you to have fun and raise some money for the Trussell Trust.

Want to put your gaming skill to good use? Here are some ideas to get you going!

Livestream gaming marathon

Already popular thanks to well-known events like GameBlast, a gaming marathon is the most common game-related fundraising activity. What is a gaming marathon? It’s a commitment to play for a continual period of time, whether on your own or as part of a team.

You could join one of the established events or organise your own. It’s a really great way to get your workplace, group or organisation involved in a fundraising event, and can be a great way for different parts of your organisation to connect. Everyone feels like part of one big team pursuing a common cause, in a really fun way.

A bake sale with a difference

Take a traditional bake sale but give it a gaming twist by making video game-themed treats. Having a Tea for Trussell in addition to your gaming marathon is a great way to allow people who do not want to game to donate or get involved in your fundraising.

Hold a gaming tournament

Get your family, friends, or office involved in a gaming competition with prizes for the top gamer. Stream the tournament to get people involved in your fundraising.
