SpecialEffect has announced that Craig Fletcher, Founder and CEO of Multiplay, has become a Vice-President of the charity.
“It’s been a real pleasure to be involved with SpecialEffect to raise money for the perfect charity for gamers,” said Craig. “I’m looking forward to helping change the lives of even more people unable to do what many of us take for granted.”
Craig and the staff at Multiplay have provided invaluable support over many years for the charity, which helps people with disabilities to enjoy video games. As part of this support, Multiplay have championed SpecialEffect’s work at their flagship Insomnia expos, which has not only benefited funding but also resulted in many people with with disabilities hearing about the charity.
“I’m absolutely delighted that Craig has agreed to join us as a VP,” said SpecialEffect Founder and CEO Dr Mick Donegan. “I can’t emphasise enough just how much his personal support and the enthusiasm of all the staff at Multiplay has played in realising the aims of the charity over the last few years. They have been pivotal in reaching out to many gaming communities on our behalf and many people have received our help because of them.”
Craig joins an impressive list of existing SpecialEffect Vice Presidents including Miles Jacobson OBE, Peter Moore, Ian Livingstone CBE and Tim Schafer.
The group will help with our ongoing activities, including the charity’s upcoming GameBlast charity gaming weekend in February 2017 that will be aiming to raise £200K for the people they help.
