UK Pinball Show sponsors Nokia N-Gage make donation to In Kind Direct

Following its sponsorship of this year's UK Pinball Show, the event organisers have donated £1050 to charity In Kind Direct.

Pinball enthusiasts raised the money at this summer's Nokia sponsored event - held at Villa Park in Birmingham - by encouraging pinball wizards to play the Nokia N-Gage 'Mile High Pinball' video game on its popular gaming device as well Atari Classics.

Martin O'Driscoll Nokia's Head of Games for UK and Ireland said, "We were happy to support the UK Pinball Show again this year and any help we can also give to such a worthwhile charity like In Kind Direct is great. It was good to see how many pinball wizards were challenged by our very own 'Mile High Pinball."

In Kind Direct was founded in 1996 by HRH The Prince of Wales and distributes new goods donated by some of Britain's best-known manufacturers and retailers to hundreds of voluntary organisations representing every kind of cause including family welfare, sickness and disability, homelessness, emergency relief, and community groups.
