One Special Day 2019 raises £455,000

We’re delighted to announce that our One Special Day 2019 campaign raised a record-breaking £455,000 – a simply incredible total!

Dr Mick Donegan, our Founder and CEO, said “The funds and awareness generated by One Special Day makes an enormous, life-changing difference. It enables us to direct the funds where they’re needed the most, helping so many more severely disabled people all over the world to play the games they love. Being supported by so many games industry partners is not only a tremendous funding boost, but a terrific morale boost to our passionate and dedicated team here at SpecialEffect. We are hugely grateful.”

The event attracted worldwide attention and very positive publicity and is set to happen all over again on Friday 2 October – its fifth year. We’re delighted that a significant number of the OSD 2019 partners have already committed to joining OSD 2020 and if you’d like to find out more or get involved, please contact Nick Streeter: nick@specialeffect.org.uk
