UK charity GamesAid raised $98,653 last year

UK video games industry charity GamesAid managed to raise £70,000 ($98,653) last year.

As reported by GamesIndustry.biz, this cash is being divided up between seven different charitable organisations: Access Sport Trust, Autistica, The Clock Tower Sanctuary, Lifelites, Everyone Can, Solving Kids' Cancer and MAPS.

Furthermore, GamesAid has announced the appointment of two new trustees in Studio Gobo's Terry Haynes – who is returning to the charity's board – and George Osborn (not that one) from UK trade body Ukie.

"Over the past year, I've spoken with so many different charities who've turned to games as a way to keep themselves going during an unimaginably tough year," Osborn said.

"I've joined GamesAid as a trustee to do what I can to continue to support this essential work and continue to demonstrate the decent, kindhearted nature of the UK games industry to the wider world."
