Three Rochester students will take part in a gaming marathon for charity over the weekend and will live stream it on the internet.By Elaine Cooney
Three Rochester Secondary College students will stage a weekend-long gaming marathon this weekend to raise money for children’s heart disease.
William Anderson, Trent Robson and Yarran Emery are avid gamers and decided to stream live examples of how they play along with commentary to a wider audience, while raising money.
The students will stream live from 10am on Saturday until 10pm on Sunday.
The trio said the marathon would also allow them to raise different topics such as their views on the politics, school life and different issues facing teenagers.
One of the most controversial topics in the gaming world involves game ratings.
The students have strong opinions on the R18 rating and censorship of computer games and will use the gaming weekend to air their views.
To watch the live stream, visit the website www.gfacgroup.com where the link will be posted nearer to the date.
People can also send messages during the marathon about the different games or with their opinions on different subjects raised.
District businesses have donated prizes for a raffle and links to the charity will be displayed for people to donate to.
