The Great Work The SpecialEffect Charity Does

March 24th, 2012 by

You may have noticed earlier in the week a change to some of our site and Twitter avatars for a day, well that was our way of showing support to a very special charity, SpecialEffect, that we’ve been involved with before, and we have some heart-warming stories about SpecialEffect’s recent efforts.

You might have heard of the amazing Charlotte Nott. When Charlotte was three she contracted meningitis, which resulted in her losing all four limbs. But that’s not enough with support from SpecialEffect to stop her gaming, as the minute long clip below so powerfully demonstrates.

In perhaps the most emotional day in the history of SpecialEffect the football league game between Oxford and Rotherham was dedicated to raising awareness and for raising funds for Charlotte and for the charity to raise much needed funds to help more young people like her.


David Cameron after seeing a presentation of the charity’s latest work praised the magic moments that the charity is seeking to provide for people with disabilities as featured in the clip below.


If You want to donate to SpecialEffect or find out more about the great work they do, please head over to www.specialeffect.org.uk.

    Yay for SpecialEffect!

    As well as the brilliant efforts at Eurogamer, we raised over 11k for SE at the British 10k http://www.midlifegamer.net/news/2011/07/special-effect-raises-11k-at-the-british-10k.html

    Although I won’t be running in my little Sonic Outfit, I will be going as the Dark Knight himself, if any of you have any spare change and would like to throw it my way that would be amaze, I can only pay you back in hugs :)
