Description

GamePad is coming to West London in the new year! Using the magic of social gaming to benefit families and young people affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.

Thanks to the great community around GamePad, we've enjoyed some great events in East London. We'll be spending the new year in West London for the first GamePad event of 2018 and you're invited!

Join us and play games for a great day out and a good cause. We're working with local organisation Rugby Portobello Trust, as well as East London social enterprise Social Ark CIC, to bring the magic of social gaming to the North Kensington area.

Local residents go free! and profit from ticket sales and sponsorship will go to providing local young people with video games, card and board games, plus other creative products over Christmas.

Social Gaming For A Good Cause

We are from communities like those affected by the events in June 2017. We wanted to reach out and give back to our fellow Londoners who come from backgrounds just like ours.

While we're not able to bring wealth or political influence, with the support of fantastic organisations we are more than capable of bringing the mayamada GamePad experience to those affected.

We know our offer isn’t a fix, but we’re hoping it will allow members of the Grenfell community to have a positive experience to start the new year, and bring people together across London using the power of gaming.

Making Gaming Fun For Everyone

GamePad is an experience for all gamers to meet up in the real world, have fun, and discover the magic of playing together in the same room. Along with a lineup of your favourite games, great competitions on the latest consoles.

"People were interacting with other while gaming, and it gave me the opportunity to share time with my children doing what they enjoy." - Sally

“I liked the diversity in terms of age ranges and people, we were all from different backgrounds and ethnicities but all with the same love...” - Miguel

“Great atmosphere, good for the family i.e. No 18 games so everyone could join in. Good fun!” - Tracey
