Solving Kids' Cancer UK receives £21,114 from GamesAid
Solving Kids' Cancer UK thanks GamesAid – the UK video games industry based charity – for their important and generous support in 2019.
On 4th September, Vicky Inglis (Senior Family Support Coordinator) and Stephen Richards (Chief Executive) were presented with a cheque for £21,114 at an evening event in London.
Both Vicky and Stephen spoke to GamesAid representatives about the charity's work and the impact their donation will have for children fighting neuroblastoma, a rare and particularly aggressive childhood cancer.
GamesAid acts as a collective for charitable activity on behalf of the video gaming industry. Each year, members of GamesAid nominate a charity and the charities with the most votes receive an equal share of the total funds raised by GamesAid - this year £168,912.
We are extremely proud that this is the fourth year we have been successful thanks to the number of votes we have received from GamesAid members. We feel part of your community and will always welcome you to be a part of ours.
These funds enable us to continue to initiate and fund vital neuroblastoma research that helps us fight for a future where no child dies from the disease or suffers due to its treatment. We'll also use it to support families affected by neuroblastoma throughout their cancer journey, helping them with the widespread challenges they face.
Our thanks again to GamesAid and to everyone that voted for us or told their colleagues and friends about our work, we are forever grateful.
