THE Inbetweeners star James Buckley is showing his support for Naomi House and Jacksplace and is going to be taking part in its virtual gaming event.

Game On! is the charity’s virtual gaming initiative and encourages individuals and groups to join forces to game, have fun and raise money for the hospices over the weekend of the March 26 and 28.

James has a Twitch channel named Completed It Mate, a reference to The Inbetweeners episode, Will’s Dilemma, which he has been streaming his gameplay on for more than two years now and includes a community of more than 200,000 followers. His charity stream will go live on his Twitch channel on Friday.

Event organiser Connor Phillips, said: “We’re so excited to bring Game On! back for the third year running, featuring the one and only James Buckley. To have someone on-board who is so well-known, has such a successful Twitch channel and is able to tell his community about our hospices is honestly a dream come true.

"On behalf of everyone at the hospices, we want to thank James for his involvement and support in making this event a success. We hope his involvement will raise our charity’s profile in the gaming world and encourage a few donations at the same time.

“Whether you’re a fully-fledged streamer or fairly new to gaming, we’d love for you to join James and get involved in Game On! You can make the event your own by dedicating a few hours each night or attempt to take on a 24hr marathon, the choice is yours. The only requirements are to have some fun gaming, spread the word about Naomi House and Jacksplace and encourage your followers to donate to our cause.”

Game On! has grown year on year and has seen its participants complete gaming marathons and take on forfeits like head shaves and wearing fancy dress to support Naomi House & Jacksplace.

The event has raised more than £10,000 for the hospices over the past two years thanks to the commitment of local gamers.
