A Retro Gaming Night For Alli - Saturday 14th November 2015

Post by theBritishIBM » Thu Nov 05, 2015 2:27 pm

Hi Guys, just a quick plug for a charity retro gaming night that we're putting on at the Centre for Computing History in Cambridge :-).

http://www.computinghistory.org.uk/det/ ... mber-2015/

A Retro Gaming Night for Alli is a one off charity event to help raise funds for Weston Park Hospital in Sheffield. Our good friend Mike Penman from Crazy Horse Gaming recently lost his wife Alli to cancer and we wanted to help him give something back to the dedicated staff there that helped her towards the end.

She was a loving and supportive wife to Mike and it would be great to see you all at this event and to help raise as much money as possible in Alli's name.

The event itself will be an awesome evening of Retro Gaming featuring all the classic gaming systems from Atari to Sony Playstation and everything between. There will be a raffle, competitions and a burger van will be available on site if you get hungry!

Live Music From MJ Hibbett (Hey Hey 16K)

The legendary MJ Hibbett will also be in attendance to perform his new two man musical 'Hey Hey 16K' to help us kick things off.

All profits from this event will go to Weston Park Hospital, Sheffield.

Obviously we are aware that not everyone can make the trip to cambridge for this night but may still wish to contribute so there will also be the option to donate via a Just Give page for those who wish to:


7pm till Midnight

Due to the fact that this is BYOB and the adult nature of some games this is an over 18s event.

Rather well, raised around £650 for the hospital.
