Gaming and Giving 2021

Rusty Quill’s Gaming and Giving is back, and this year will be held on 4th-5th December. For 2021, we will stream the whole thing online, and following feedback have added a ticketed area that folks can hand out with cast, crew, and friends from all over the world!

You can join us live on the RQ Streams Twitch channel for a full 24-hours of games, RPGs, chat, quizzes, fun and frolics. There will also be some incredible giveaways from the likes of Bungie, Czech Games, Grant Howitt and many more.

Once again, we’re trying to raise £20,000 to split between our three chosen charities:

  • Mermaids, helping gender-diverse kids, young people and their families since 1995
  • ActionAid, working internationally with women and girls living in poverty
  • Centrepoint, helping homeless young people

Each charity will have a separate link on our Just Giving Page, so please try to give evenly to these three wonderful causes! Want to donate? Head over to Just Giving right now!

In 2020, we smashed our target of £20,000 and we’re hoping to do just as well this year. As always, we have some creative incentives and stretch goals planned for our generous viewers who donate. Spread the word using #RQGG21 and share your favourite moments from the day!

If you’d like a ticket to our Gather Town Rusty Towers, please head over to our Event Brite page!

If you can’t wait until the show, you can catch up with past broadcasts on our YouTube channel:
