PS4 and Xbox fans can now raise cash for Stand Up To Cancer just by playing games

PLAYERS across the country are being encouraged to don their headsets, pick up their controllers and Game On to raise money for life-saving cancer research.

A powerful video from Stand Up To Cancer has been released to invite the community to get in the zone for a brilliant cause.

In the vid, some of gaming’s favourite characters from the likes of FIFA 20, Total War: Three Kingdoms and Judgement, join together to take on their biggest enemy yet.

Whether it’s a sizzling Raheem Sterling smashing top bins or Sonic racing away at speed, gamers are being persuaded to button-bash away at cancer.

The event is called Game On, a fortnight of funding that takes place from October 11 to 25.

It’s pretty simple to: Just sign up at su2c.org.uk/game-on, set up a JustGiving page and then plan your gaming challenge.

It can be anything you like. Hosting a tournament, indulging in a massive gaming sesh, or simply trying to set a new PB for one of your fave games (I’ve been meaning to hit 100% on Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag for a while now).

Doug Cockle, who voices the character of Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher series, said: “Cancer has touched my life in numerous ways, including having been diagnosed myself as an 11-year-old boy, and I’ve witnessed many friends and some family face this beast.

“Lending my voice to the campaign is my way of beating cancer at its own game and hopefully encouraging action that can help to make a difference.

“I have seen first-hand what an epic fundraising campaign this is and how important the work is that Stand Up To Cancer does.”

Stand Up To Cancer is a joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4 that brings the UK together to speed up progress in life-saving research.
