Host a gaming day for you and your friends this World Gaming Day.

The Great North Air Ambulance Service has joined forces with GivePenny to bring you a new fundraising event - World Gaming Day! Think of it like an upgraded coffee morning - host a gaming day with drinks and snacks, invite your friends and family to play some games, and ask them to donate to your GivePenny fundraising page to participate.

Calling all gamers and streamers!

Are you ready to join the team and raise money for the Great North Air Ambulance Service?

Simply sign up, choose your game, play and stream – or why not invite your friends round for a night of gaming?

Saturday 22 October is the official World Gaming Day, but you can host your gaming day throughout October.

We’ll provide you with everything you need to host your own World Gaming Day get-together – all you need to do is pick the games and pick your players!

The Great North Air Ambulance Service provides advanced trauma care to the most severely ill and injured people in the North of England.

Did you know that we were called upon 1620 times last year? Every mission costs, on average, £4,135. We receive no government funding and rely on supporters like you to ensure we can be there for the next person who needs us. You are the hero of our quest, and we need YOU to join the battle!

Donations and sponsorship raised through World Gaming Day will ensure we can provide our patients with the very best chance of survival and recovery.

We suggest asking participants to donate to join in the fun, and add more incentives through GivePenny.

Incentives can be anything you want – £2 means the next round your opponent is one-handed, or £1 and you’ll add a song of their choice to the Spotify playlist. All of these can really add up and help save lives!
