Do you want to support The Christie during the COVID-19 pandemic? Any support you can give will help us keep touching patients' lives today, tomorrow and beyond.
If you're holding an online gaming event for your friends or family, please create a JustGiving page in support of The Christie.
Please note: you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing at all times.
Taking part in an online gaming marathon is one way you can raise money in support of The Christie charity. By setting yourself a challenge to keep gaming for 24 hours, you can stream your progress and get sponsorship.
The easiest way to livestream your gaming is through Twitch. Twitch is an online video platform that lets you broadcast live, including playing video games.
Once you’ve got your JustGiving page and Twitch account set up, you can use the JustGiving live streaming tool to connect the two. This means you’ll be ready to go live for your followers!
Set a date and time for your online charity gaming event and let people know about this through your Facebook or Twitter accounts. Make sure you tag in The Christie charity on Twitter or Facebook so we can cheer you on!
One great way to get more people to donate to your online charity gaming marathon is to connect with gaming influencers on social media. These are people who livestream games regularly and have a lot of followers.
When you’re connecting with gaming influencers, reach out to someone you have a personal connection with or someone you know already supports The Christie charity. Gaming influencers will get a lot of requests to support online charity gaming events and having a personal link can help you stand out from the crowd.
If you’re looking to host an online gaming event for The Christie, register your event and request a fundraising pack from us. We can send you fundraising tips and post you out a free Christie t-shirt to wear during the event.
