UK Games Expo Supporting Charity

£5000 for charity raised at UKGE

We can now reveal the charity donations associated with UKGE.

Each year UKGE asks the two large cosplay groups that attend to choose a charity each to become the official charities that UKGE will support.

Galactic Knights selected Cancer Research UK

Who's Company chose the Leeds based Children Heart Surgery Fund.

The profit from the Bring and Buy (we charge a commission on items sold on the bring and buy) will be given to these two charities. 

Each of the above charities will recieve £2014.16 from the Bring and Buy takings.

Add to that Who's Company collected around £300 themeselves at the event.

Playtest Zone:
This year, we asked for a donation to the Children's Heart Surgery Fund from our games designers, in order to pre-book their playtesting tables and they came up trumps:

We raised £295 + £58.75 (Gift Aid)

Maths trade:

The maths traders were asked to donate £1 for each successful trade to Cancer Research UK, which they did:

We raised £294 + £67 (Gift Aid)

Taken as a whole this means that activities at UK Games Expo ammounted to £5043  of charitable donations.

Hopefully 2016 will see this rise even higher.
