Newark gaming enthusiast who started a Facebook club raises more than £1,500 for the Children’s Bereavement Centre
A gaming enthusiast who started a Facebook club for like-minded individuals a year ago has raised more than £1,500 for children suffering through bereavement.
Paul Reavill, 33, of Carlton Road, Newark, helped launch a Facebook page, Games Room, as a platform for gamers to chat and buy and sell consoles, associated kit and games.
Their latest charity raffle took place over 48 hours and raised £1,600 through the sale of gaming goods such as the old Nintendo 64 that were donated by some of the group’s 1,500 members.
Around 50 donations were made to the raffle.
Window cleaner Paul will present the money to the Newark-based Children’s Bereavement Centre, having been touched by the plight of children in what he said must be a doubly difficult time.
