Industry donations to Paddington Academy top £1 million

Three year's of support for educational institution

The games industry has donated over £1 million to educational institution The Paddington Academy.

On behalf of the Entertainment Software Charity, GamesAid's latest donation of GBP 214,000 brings the total to the figure after three year's of support.

"This latest donation is a fantastic achievement by the games industry," said Rod Cousens, former chairman of the ESC.

"Because of our long-term support of the academy we have been able to ensure that a great number of vulnerable young people with aspirations to better themselves have been able to do so."

GamesAid trustee Sarah Seaby added: "It is amazing to see so much money raised by the games industry go to this project, and credit should be given to those people across all areas of the games industry who have helped to make this achievement possible."
