Charity Fundraiser for Cancer Research UK and Alder Hey Children’s Hospital


Due to the lack of a Guild-wide 24-hour Charity Fundraiser Animesoc, Gamingsoc, RPGSoc and ComicSoc have banded together to host a 12-hour Fundraiser on Friday 18th March to raise money for charity. The fundraiser promises a wealth of activities and events available to all for only £2, all of which will be donated to Cancer Research UK and Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.

Starting from 12pm on Friday (18th March) the Elizabeth Gidney suite and Mandela Room will be given over to charitable events, including screenings of your favourite anime films, board games, gaming tournaments (Smash Bros., Nidhogg, Mario Kart), a cosplay competition and the ‘BIG AUCTION.’ Each society involved has donated auction prizes and attendees will be able to bid on items such as comics, posters, plushies, memorabilia and Japanese confections!


The event, that shall be accompanied by a Bakesoc cake sale, promises to be a great event with rumours of en masse pizza ordering and Cards Against Humanity with all the expansion packs.

12pm – 4pm = Studio Ghibli film screenings in Mandela Room.

4:30pm – MIDNIGHT = Video games + Board games + Card games + Gaming tournaments + Cosplay competition + Anime and western cartoon episodes in the Elizabeth Gidney Suite (rooms 1 and 2).

9pm – 10pm = BIG AUCTION + Raffle + Cakes!

The Charity Fundraiser should be an amazing event raising money for two very worthy charities. So come along, dip in and out of screenings, board games and gaming, get dressed up and have a good time for a good cause.
