Blackpool Carers Centre, our chosen charity for 2016, has been shortlisted for GamesAid funding this year. There are only have a few days left to canvass as many votes as possible to secure funding from a shortlist of 20 charities.
The charity supports young carers who often take on practical and/or emotional caring responsibilities that would normally be expected of an adult.
If you are a GamesAid member and have not voted yet, we’d be very grateful if you could consider the charity as your nomination this year. You should have already received your voting pack from GamesAid by email.
With your help, Replay Events have raised over £10,000 for GamesAid during the past five years and we felt it would be fitting to see some of the funding this year be donated to a charity in the North of England, especially one that is close to our hearts.
