Hello all, this weekend myself and a buddy known as PirateDave successfully completed a 24-hour gaming marathon in aid of the charity Special Effect. It was a tough one, particularly during the early hours of the morning, but we had a great time and managed to raise a few pounds for a great cause.

I’m just writing here to thank all of those that tweeted us words of encouragement, stopped by the live-stream chat room, and especially those that were able to send us some of their hard-earned cash towards the cause. We appreciate each and every one of you!

The total raised currently sits at just over £60 GBP, which was less than our goal, but will hopefully at least be of some help to the good folk at Special Effect.

If you’d still like to donate, you can still do so over on the Just Giving page. Plus, if you’ve got 24 hours spare, there’s a recording of the full marathon over on Twitch.tv.
