Visit to Changing Futures
Last night myself, Mark, Christian and Thomas Black (one of the Student Ambassadors) visited Changing Futures Hartlepool to find out more about what the charity does for the young people of Hartlepool.
Whilst we were there we told the group about the Gamecon, which we are hosting for the third year in a row –this year!
We brought along the arcade cabinet that a few of the students made last year for the group to try and beat one another’s score on Sonic the Hedgehog.
Followed by a few games on the Nintendo Switch, which seemed to be a hit amongst the group! It was a very interesting night finding out about where the money we raise by doing the Gamecon goes and meeting the people it benefits.
This year the Gamecon will be held on Wednesday 31st May – Friday 2nd June.
It is £1 entry and all proceeds will go to Changing Futures –
helping them work with individuals, families and communities
in the country.
This year Gamecon is going to be bigger and better than
before with more consoles than before! Stalls from local
businesses and universities…
Come along and help us raise money for a worthy cause!
