Hey all!!

I have been working with a small group of guys lately to host a 24 hour event at Arcade Club, Bury.
This will be a charity event raising money for Cancer Research UK.

Obviously Cancer is one of those things that effects so many people, I believe up to 1 in 2 now which is simply terrible and we want to do our bit to help!

Tickets are £35 and all profits will go to charity!
You can buy tickets and official merchandise from Mana Merch (profits from merch also going to charity)

Extra Life – ManaMerch

This is happening on the 28th April and starting at 11am. Now this is a Thursday to Friday event which I know is not the best day for many but it will be worth booking a few days off work for, Not only will it be awesome but also its a bank holiday weekend so you will get the Sat, Sun and Monday to recover!!

I know you dont all have/use facebook but for those who do please join the group:
Extra Life - Video Gaming Event | Facebook

Also if you want to just donate to the cause please donate using the following just giving page, All donations go directly to Cancer Research UK.

Tickets are still available guys so please get ya tickets and book a few days off for what is sure to be an amazing event and opportunity for a meet up!

Just as a note though as its been asked a few times you DO NOT need to stay for the full 24H
You are free to come and go as you please within the 24H so if you want to show up on the Thursday evening and just stay until the early hours thats totally fine!
We have one guest who is planing on getting there around 2AM on the Friday so really rock up when you dig it :D

This is all in aid of a real good cause so please support it if you can.

I have updated the original post with links to the ticket sales site as well as the just giving link if you would like to make a direct donation.

Thanks all and hope to see you there :D

Having lost someone recently to cancer I'd be all over this but I'm already booked out. 

Will be supporting though as soon as payday rolls around.

Sorry I have been quiet on here guys, Been busy on the old social medias!

Its getting close now so it would be great to see some of you there if you can make it and raise some money for a Charity that is currently supporting one of our own!

So other than a meet and 24 hour blast at AC here is what else you can Expect.

1) A lightgun competition with the Prize of a brand new Sinden Lightgun
2) A Fighter comp with a Mortal Kombat Figurine up for grabs to the winner
3) A daytona racing challenge with a Daytona Cup for the winner
4) A puzzle fighter comp with a funky Tetris prize
5) A raffle on the day with some cool retro prizes as well as other bits n bobs.

The bar will also be open for extended hours!

Hope to see you there!
