Team Hamster Update: 5th July

Hi and welcome to a slightly later than usual Team Hamster weekly update!

We are just 32 days away from this years 24 hour gaming marathon to support Special Effect. This week we have two videos which show how the team at Special Effect have helped individuals enjoy gaming.

The first video below we see how they help Elliott join his friends on Xbox.

The support this organisation give is simply beyond words.

The second video shows how they have helped Will overcome his spinal injury and play the games he loves.

When you can enable someone to do the things they love, the rewards are beyond words.

It goes without saying that the work the whole team does goes beyond words, over the past few weeks we have highlighted how Special Effect continue to break down barriers and change peoples perceptions on whether they can game or not due to disabilities.
