Mad on Gaming

What started off as a straight forward piece of fundraising with a target of £350 ended up being a major event that raised over £6000.

Emily Perkins decided to ride the Tour De France in her living room but a friend request on Facebook accidentally linked her up with an on-line gamers Cloud9 who warmed to what she was doing and so supported her beyond her wildest dreams. Before she knew it donations to her Just Giving page started to arrive and her original target was soon overtaken. Even her guinea pigs got in on the act. When their pictures were seen by the gamers they soon fell in love with them and the rest, as they say, is history.
