Be a Hospice Gaming Hero

With your superhero gaming skills, you can help us raise funds to ensure our vital care services are available throughout Northern Ireland.

Be a Hospice Gaming Hero is a gaming challenge to raise money for Northern Ireland Hospice and Children’s Hospice. Sign up, pick a day to play your favourite game for as long as you want and ask friends and family to sponsor you as you level up.

Game on any console, form the ultimate dream team or take on this challenge alone. Whatever way you decide to play, your skills will help Hospice care for local people in your community living with life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses.

How to get involved

Head over to Give Penny and set up your gaming challenge fundraising page. Start planning and tell all your friends and family to get behind you.

Tools and resources

We've got you covered. GivePenny's handy Stream Tools include overlays and donation buttons, plus you can download the Be a Hospice Gaming Hero logos. To top it all off, we'll send you helpful fundraising tips on email!

Playlist Fundraising 

If you enjoy listening to your favourite tunes whilst gaming – we have you covered! GivePenny now connects to Spotify, giving you yet another fundraising super-power! There's a Spotify block on every Hospice Gaming fundraising page and all you need to do is connect your Spotify account to GivePenny to get started.

So whether it's songs to drive you through the current level, or tunes to put you off your game for fun, friends can add songs to your gaming playlist, but only if they add a donation first of course!

Don't forget to spread the word!

Make sure to let your friends and family know you're taking up our Gaming Hero Challenge. Share on your Facebook page, tweet your favourite YouTubers and gamers and send a message to your WhatsApp group to encourage donations. 

What are you waiting for? Grab that gaming headset, have your controller at the ready and get your game on!
