Being our first event, it's important for us to set the tone and show who we are and what we are about. We want our events to be inclusive for all regardless of age, gender, ability, race or skill and most of all fun!
We also recognise the importance of giving something back, and at the same time as having fun being able to do something positive in raising funds for local charities. For N-LAN:1 we will be making a donation to the Evening Chronicles Sunshine Fund, and we will be raising the funds via a variety a charity raffle and various fun charity games.
The Chronicle Sunshine Fund provides specialised equipment to children with disabilities in the North East of England, individuals, groups, registered organisations, special and mainstream schools and hospitals can ask for our support to improve the lives of children with disabilities. You can find out more about the fund and the great work they do here
The Chronicle Sunshine Fund was founded in 1928 by King George V, he came to Newcastle to open the Tyne Bridge, while he was here he donated £15 to give underprivileged children a day out to the coast, the Chronicle adopted the idea of giving to children in the area and the Chronicle Sunshine Fund was established.
We're sure you will agree that it is an amazing worthy cause, and we look forward to doing a good deed as a gaming community and giving something back.
