Aylesbury gamers raise 5-times their NHS fundraising target

Over £1,000 has been raised for Buckinghamshire's NHS by four schoolboys doing what they love - playing video games.

Their livestream from 10am on Thursday until 10am today has brought in five times their original target of £200.

As of 10.30am on Thursday, the total stands at £1,112.

The group are Tom Draper, Ben Yates, Sam Tucker and Ben Howard.

Tom says on the donation page:

"We have family members that are risk and they are still working for the NHS during the COVID-19 outbreak.

"So I wish to raise money to help provide more masks, hand gel, ventilators, and ICU beds, to help protect the NHS and help more people that are suffering from COVID-19."

You can donate to them over on JustGiving.
