Well guys we've done it!

SlayerX has finally gone to bed after his 24 hour Uncharted session, making him the Last Of Us to finish up (Naughty Dog puns :fp:)

Right now our JG page is sitting at £2145. Combined with Neil's (NBK) £589 that takes us to £2734, with more still to come.

I just want to take the opportunity to thank all of you for your contributions, even those of you who had to drop out due to work/life commitments. You all played a part in making this the biggest and most successful Sick Kids Save Point event GRcade has ever participated in.

When I'd originally decided that I was gonna do SKSP again this year I knew I wanted it to be a bigger deal than last years and it certainly was that. More participants, more money and a much higher profile on the forum.

So to make a few specific thank yous.

Karl and Gecko. Both of them have been amazingly supportive from when I first posted the Thread asking for discussions about an official GR charity event. I think this would have been far less successful if it hadn't been for their approval. Top lads.

Mocky, thank you so much for the wonderful Logo. Work of art. :datass:

NBK (Neil), again thanks for all your advice and input when it came to organising this. When things were really quiet and I thought it might not happen, you were the one who kept messaging with updates and stuff. You're the soul of SKSP on this forum man. Utter legend.

SlayerX(Shawn). Not even mentioning THAT donation, you've been fantastic in the promotion and awareness of this years event. Wouldn't have even a fraction of the success we've had without you.

Jawa, Roon, Orange Rakoon, and basically anyone that posted in the thread with support.

Anyone that joined the live stream chats for either myself or SlayerX. Made me feel so much better that we weren't just talking to ourselves.

Finally, to anyone that donated (I know a few of you made some VERY generous donations). I know NBK will want to thank you all himself (Which he can do later :D ), but you guys are the ones that made the difference here. None of this would have happened, or have had any point if it wasn't for you all. So thank you.

It was a long road, and an even longer marathon (Watch my Battlefront vid any you'll clearly see me nodding off while playing :slol:) but we got there.

Thanks again guys, and here's hoping for a bigger, better next year!

Aw shucks :oops: You're welcome :)

I echo everything you've said there, tremendous support from the forum and a fantastic effort from everyone involved. Donations, artwork, posts, the lot. Just great! So happy to see everyone join in.

A huge thank you has to go to you as well though! I know only too well how exhausting it can be trying to keep momentum going along with all the planning, so hats off to you, dude, you've been brilliant :D

And yes, here's to next year! :toot:

Well played, guys! The time and effort that you put in will help good things to happen for some disadvantaged kids and that has to be a great result :toot: .

Excellent!

Heard from Tom last night and he confirmed that Rockstar North made a sizable donation too. Might buy GTA V as a show of appreciation :shifty:

I've already bought it twice so they're not getting anymore from me!

But good stuff Slayer. I'll update it when I get home. Still got some offline stuff to get from my mums work but she's off this week, so I'll have to wait for that. But I THINK we might have made our £2450 target. I really hope we have.

Because I haven't been able to do the video editing and put videos of my playthrough up yet, I figure I ought to punish myself and top myself up to my £100 target. What's the best way to get that into the GRcade kitty? It's all cash at the moment; I could do a big donation to the GRcade page and pick up some gift aid?

Yep, I'd say that would be the best way too.

Is anyone's cash yet to come in? It looks like our final count is 94% £2,325.00/£2,450.00.

EDIT: With Neil's £839.30, our grand total is £3,164.30 I think!

I'm still waiting till my mum goes back to work to get the money she's collected. But I think, we're pretty much there. I need you guys to pm me your exact offline totals and let me know if you're gonna make that donation direct to the charity, or through JustGiving.

I just want to make one final post in here before I ask the mods to lock and archive the thread.

Having finally been able to get all the figures and donations in I can announce that the final amount raised this year was....

£3194.30

This includes NBK's total, which was separate from the main GRcade total.

I just want to give one final thank you to everyone involved. We couldn't have done it without all your help. :D :toot:

I hope to get some footage up at some point too, but I'll probably make a new thread, as I expect this will be archived by then.

I'm off work until the 2nd of November I should be able to make the donation on the JG page before then if need be and get it back from work.

Any news on the Rock Star donation ?

Also when are the SKSP guys doing an update or podcast?
