Macmillan’s Game Heroes is another level of gaming challenge to help people affected by cancer.

The rules are pretty simple:

  • Fire up a games machine (or several) and play for a full 24 hours.
  • Get sponsored by your friends and family.         
  • Take part as a team, or go solo.
  • Choose your console wisely. You could go for a mixture of Xbox, PC and first generation Game Boy to keep things fresh.
  • On the day, you can choose to stream your game play or post on social media to keep your sponsors updated.
  • All the money raised by you and your fellow heroes will go to Macmillan Cancer Support and could help people like Thom.
