Games studios and streamers raise £400k for Make-A-Wish UK

Charity worked with Miniclip, Huuuge Games and Hutch to grant 200 wishes to UK children

Several games studios banded together to raise £400,000 for Make-A-Wish UK, the non-profit that arranges life-changing experiences for critically ill children.

The charity’s ‘Wish 200 week’ took place July 18 - 22, and saw developers including Miniclip, Huuuge Games, Hutch and others assist with the fundraising efforts.

Multiple streamers also hosted broadcasts throughout the week to raise money for the cause.

100% of the money raised will fuel wishes for 200 children across the UK.

"Yet again, the gaming community has proved that it's a force to be reckoned with, coming together to achieve a very special and very ambitious goal," said Rob Small, president of Miniclip and Make-A-Wish UK patron. "I'm proud to be part of such a phenomenal community that has supported Make-A-Wish so they can now change the lives of 200 critically ill children and young people."

The initiative was launched last year, initially dubbed as the Wish 100 Week. In July 2021, Miniclip president Rob Small worked with Huuuge Games as well as several companies and streamers to raise £200,000 to fuel wishes for 100 ill children.

Update: The headline and copy of this story have been updated to more accurately reflect the role of Make A Wish UK and the companies that took part in the fundraiser.
