Game changing funding for Lifelites

Mon 24th Sep 2018 

We’re delighted to announce that Lifelites has been awarded over £20,000 by GamesAid, the charity of the UK video games industry.

Over the last few weeks Lifelites campaigned for votes from GamesAid members after being shortlisted earlier in the year. We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted for us, or helped us campaign for votes. The hard work paid off and we were presented with a cheque for £23,680.

In the past, money from GamesAid has been vital in supporting our work donating technology to children and young people in children’s hospice services, and has enabled us to embark on new and exciting projects, specifically Virtual Reality (VR).

Thanks to this latest donation, we will now be able to roll out our VR pilot to young people in a number of hospices across the British Isles. We know that this technology has incredible potential to have an impact on the lives of young people with disabilities. It enables them to travel to places they never thought they’d go, and can immerse them in experiences they might never have had otherwise, such as riding a rollercoaster, swimming with dolphins or even flying a spaceship – all within the safety of the hospice walls.

Keep an eye on our social media channels if you’d like to keep see the progress of our Virtual Reality projects. If you’d like to support us to help donate this tech to even more children and young people, take a look at our A-Z of fundraising ideas.
