Bristol's Yogscast launches Jingle Jam 2021 gaming event

Posted on: 01 Dec 2021

Jingle Jam is the world's biggest charity gaming event and (now in its 10th year) the 2021 edition is launching today at 5pm, running for 2 weeks.

 

Jingle Jam is back again from today (Wednesday 1 December) raising money for Bristol Children’s Hospital dedicated charity - The Grand Appeal. 

 

 

Presented, as always, by local videogame entertainment company The Yogscast, Jingle Jam raises millions for charities all over the world through its Game Collection (worth over £600) – available for fans in return for a donation to charity.

 

For 2021, fans will have to opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of Aardman thanks to a dedicated stream from director and designer, Gavin Strange. 

 

The stream will give Jingle Jammers the opportunity to ask Gavin any questions they may have as well as offering them a peak behind the scenes at Aardman. Audiences will also be able to receive the Games Collection in return for donating to The Grand Appeal. 

 

During the first two weeks in December, more than fifty Jingle Jam streamers are involved in special events - such as cooking, painting, poker, karaoke and much, much more. For the first time this year, any creator interested in Jingle Jam can set up their own fundraising streams, with audiences able to receive the Games Collection in return for donations to charity.

 

The Yogscast has raised over £1.1 million for The Grand Appeal since 2017 to fund a new development for Bristol Children’s Hospital. The pioneering new patient rehabilitation centre will be one of the first of its kind for sick children and their families in the UK. 

 

Fans can get hold of the stream on Sunday 12 December as part of this year's much anticipated Jingle Jam charity which goes live today (1 December) at 5pm on Yogcast's Twitch page, and finishes at midnight on 14 December.
