My story

[p]Thank you for visiting my page![/p][p]For those of you who don't know me, I am an avid gamer and have been attending the [url=https://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/]UK Games Expo[/url] in Birmingham for a number of years. UKGE is the largest hobby games convention in the UK and is a fun event that appeals to families as well as more serious gaming enthusiasts. I will be attending once again this year but, unfortunately, one of my friends will not. Seren Mawson (6) was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL) in December and is currently undergoing an intense regime of chemotherapy. You can read [url=https://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/seren.php]Seren's Story here[/url]. [/p][p]I have decided to use the Expo as an opportunity to raise awareness for ALL and raise funds for the charities that are supporting Seren and her family. Seren's favourite game is [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aeT2qssQii8]Happy Salmon[/url] and UKGE have organised a [url=https://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/game.php?id=CHI5059]special game[/url] of it in her name. I will be playing along, dressed in costume as the Happy Salmon! [/p][p]Please sponsor me to dress up and look like a fool for this event. It will really put a smile on Seren's face and hopefully raise a decent amount of money for the [url=https://www.cclg.org.uk/Serens-ALL-Stars]Seren's ALL Stars name fund[/url] and the [url=https://www.cclg.org.uk/]Children's Cancer and Leukaemia Group[/url]. [/p][p]If we reach the initial target of £100 I will wear the salmon costume to the Happy Salmon event. If we get to £250 I will wear it for the whole day on Saturday 1st June. If we exceed £1000 I will wear it for the whole Expo (Friday through Sunday).[/p][p]Thank you for your support and hopefully I'll see you in Birmingham at the Expo. Please join us for the Happy Salmon event if you are going - it is at 6pm and is free to enter. We are hoping to make it the largest Happy Salmon game ever! [/p]
