Gaming for Gold is a great way to have fun doing what you enjoy, while raising funds to support our vital regional services. 

Pick an online game, play on your own console, or even choose a challenge and 'Game for Gold' with North East Autism Society.



If you haven't done this before, but you would like to try it then here is how you can set up a gaming event from scratch.        

Follow these steps to take part in Gaming for Gold:

  1. Register below and set up a Just Giving page for your challenge or ask your friends and family to make a donation here 
  2. Set a date 
  3. Gather your gaming squad or go solo
  4. Stream your gaming marathon and encourage sponsors
  5. Tag @NorthEastAutismSociety on Facebook, or @NEAutismSociety on Twitter and Instagram. Remember to use the hashtag #Gamingforgold

There are a number of ways to get involved:

  •  Gameathon - Select your console, select your game(s) and select your hours for the ultimate gameathon! 


  • Gaming Tournament – Bring together your friends and family and ask them for a donation in aid of North East Autism Society to join the tournament!


  • They Control – Your followers control how you play! For every challenge completed e.g. play left-handed for 5 minutes, ask them to make a donation to North East Autism Society    


  • Mix it up – Mix up your gaming experience by setting a fundraising target with a pledge to complete something wacky once reached e.g. play in fancy dress or wax your legs!  


  • Tabletop Games - You don’t have to be a video gamer to join in the fun! You can still take part in the challenges above through holding a Board Games Night!
