Game on For Blesma raises £1000 with inaugural Gameathon
The first Game on for Blesma Challenge has now been completed, as Callum Walker aka DustMonkeyGames has managed to raise an incredible £1000 by Live streaming video games for 24hours!
Starting at 5pm on Saturday and playing right through until 5pm Sunday, Callum is the first gamer to live stream his video gaming to support the Association.
Callum said: “In 2018 I became paralysed in my right leg below the knee. For the first time in my life, I had an insight into daily life with a disability due to the hazards of life."
“I have always had a very close relationship with our Veteran community and from that it was suggested I look into Blesma as I wanted to use my circumstances to raise money for a fantastic charity. Blesma is exactly that and helps our men and women who have suffered life changing injuries in the service of the country. It wasn’t my first-time raising money for Blesma, and it won’t be my last either.”
Incredibly, Callum has manged to double his £500 target, with donations rolling in from Poland, Russia, Italy, Sweden, Denmark and beyond.
