exceL Elects to Support SpecialEffect

24th November 2015

Here at exceL eSports, we're always on the look out for any organisation that shares our passion for video games and our ethos for helping to cultivate an environment in which people can enjoy and succeed in life with video games. Having spoken with the Charity and assuring them of our intentions, we are delighted to announce a brand new addition to the exceL eSports extended family - SpecialEffect, the gamers' charity. 

SpecialEffect is a gamers charity that do phenomenal work to help improve the lives of people with physical disabilities by helping and enabling them to play video games. Their work is by no means simple and we were humbled to learn of the extra lengths they take by visiting individual people to find out exactly what they want to play and what they would require to play it. Here's an extract from their own website, giving further detail:

We put fun and inclusion back into the lives of people with physical disabilities by helping them to play video games. By using technology ranging from modified joypads to eye-control, we're finding a way for people to play to the very best of their abilities. But we're not just doing it for fun. By levelling the playing field, we're bringing families and friends together and having a profoundly positive impact on therapy, confidence and rehabilitation.

Our aim and hope is to help SpecialEffect to raise awareness of the fantastic work this Charity is doing wiithin the United Kingdom. Furthermore, we plan to raise funds for this brilliant organisation in the New Year through our own involvement with professional video gaming events.
