Mike’s fundraising story
“Gaming has always been a hobby of mine. I’m the only one in my family who is passionate about it. I’ve met a lot of incredible and unique people from playing games, which is what made me start streaming.
I stream my games on the popular streaming network, Twitch. Back in early December, my viewers and I were discussing potential ways of raising money for charity. It’s something we’d talked about before, but nothing had ever come off.
It was then that we decided to do a 24-hour stream to raise money. I asked mum which charity she wanted to support and she chose Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.
The streaming was a huge success. Throughout the day we played a variety of different games, including Football Manager 2020 and Overcooked 2.
The last six hours were the most difficult – and painful at times – knowing and feeling that you’re so tired but you cannot go to sleep. Knowing I was supporting mum though kept me going. When I ended the stream, I was completely exhausted. I went to bed and fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow.
I managed to raise £664. I still can’t believe I managed to raise so much. I was, and still am, totally overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity.
To me, it shows the power of my fantastic gaming community and their willingness to support where they can. Without them, I wouldn’t be able to have raised such a fantastic amount and I am truly grateful for all of them.”
