Tourette’s Action, Samuel Gets Gaming
On Sunday 4 October, Samuel (First Year) did a seven hour gaming livestream, not just for fun, but for a charity that has really helped him, a charity which is called Tourette’s action.
At the age of seven, Samuel’s family noticed he started flicking his neck back and after investigation it was found this was a tic and he was diagnosed with Tourette’s syndrome. Samuel then attended an event called TicFest, which was held by Tourette’s Action and this really helped him, so he wanted to do something to support them.
They released an event called Tourette’s Action Gaming Festival and Samuel saw this as the perfect opportunity to give something back. After weeks of hard work, Samuel and his family set up an amazing strategy around how this would work with over 8 hours of gaming and seven different games played. In the end they raised an incredible £2,145! Samuel says it was one of the best days of his life. What a superb effort and a great way to raise awareness, we are very proud of you Samuel.Back to all news
