One Special Birthday Bash!

Simon Barratt celebrates in style

Crowd of people holding SpecialEffect flag

SpecialEffect Ambassador, Simon Barratt, celebrated his birthday in style this week at the most loved party of Develop, Brighton. In what has become a regular fundraising event for One Special Day, we joined Simon, party sponsors Cooperative Innovations and Boss Alien and friends for drinks, laughs and shenanigans to round off a fantastic week at the gathering of the games industry on the south coast.

Simon is a hugely popular figure in the games industry and friends from far and wide gathered at the Ohso Social Bar on Brighton seafront to party into the early hours. And, while everyone enjoyed the get together, the party raised a fantastic £4,500 for One Special Day.

‘As a long-standing SpecialEffect Ambassador, it’s my pleasure and privilege to be able to raise money towards the work of this amazing charity. Catching up with old friends whilst supporting a great cause is a perfect way to celebrate my birthday.’

Thanks to Simon and everyone who helped him celebrate another year at One Special Birthday Bash.
