The British Esports Association has teamed up with SpecialEffect as part of World Esports Day.
The global gaming celebration takes place on 24th October 2020 and will see various members of the community streaming and doing more to spread awareness of the positives of playing esports.
Money raised throughout UK-based activities will go to SpecialEffect, the charity that puts inclusion back into the lives of people with physical disabilities by helping them to play video games. By using different technology, SpecialEffect finds a way for people to play.
“We are delighted to have been chosen as the charity partner for World Esports Day here in the UK. Over recent years we have received fantastic support from organisations, businesses and individuals throughout the esports community, who have shown a strong affinity with our work enabling more people with severe physical disabilities to play to the best of their ability. ”Tom Donegan, Fundraising Lead at SpecialEffect

“We’re delighted to help raise funds for such a worthwhile cause in SpecialEffect. We’re excited to see how the day goes and to raise money for a number of great causes and charities around the world.”Chester King, CEO and founder of the British Esports Association
