GamesAid vice chair, Caroline Miller said, ‘It is a real pleasure to spend time with each of the charities and to see the great work they do. Making this video really brings home the message that GamesAid makes a huge difference to so many children and young people. It is a great way to convey the message to all of our members, the industry and gamers alike. Please take the time to watch it. ’
