We’re thrilled that we’ve once again blown our fundraising target out of the water with a third Tomb Raider marathon for charity.

Playing games from the renowned franchise for five days, or 120 hours, straight, our dedicated Tomb Raiders raised an impressive £1,539.47. One generous donor contributed over £700, lending a significant amount to our gamers’ efforts.

The entire event was streamed live with donations arriving from a worldwide audience.

The team’s chosen charity, Help Hope Live, helps families in a medical crisis to secure life changing care through fundraising.

Participant Emma Roberts said, “I really enjoyed it. I’m so happy we raised so much money for charity – it’s going to such a good cause and I am so proud of everyone”.

“Our third gaming marathon was, once again, a great success,” commented event organiser Matt Hadden.

“The community we’re building up continues to amaze me each time we do these. We were so close to raising more in this marathon than the previous two combined, which is mind-blowing to me.

“I want to say a massive thank you to all that made this happen and donated. Coming together like this demonstrates humanity at its best – that we’re ready to help others through life at its worst.”
