GamesAid poker night raises 3000

The industry charity will use the money to help a wide range of children's organisations

GamesAid has raised more than GBP 3000 for charity at its poker event on July 29 at the Grosvenor Casino, Brighton, which took place alongside the Develop conference.

The event - watched by over 50 people - was participated by 34 games industry veterans, with each paying GBP 50 to enter into the competition and while the proceeds are going to charity the prize for winning was GBP 500.

The UK-based videogames industry charity aims to raise and distribute funds to a range of predominantly children's charities, and photos from the night can be found on the organisation's website.
