For Cancer Research UK

Retro Video Gaming – Pixels Against Cancer

On Sunday 16th September, My Special Event will be hosting a Charity Event in aid of Cancer Research UK. Pixels Against Cancer is an afternoon/evening of Retro Video Gaming. It is open to all ages and abilities.

The event will be hosted at The Waverley Pub situated along the beautiful seafront of the West Sussex seaside town of Bognor Regis.

Cancer Doesn’t Discriminate 

Cancer can affect anyone, any gender, age, religion or sexuality. It can come in many forms and affect many lives.  Cancer Research UK is an organisation who have a vision that one day all cancers will be cured, no one will continue to live in pain or suffering.

The last 40 years.

Cancer Research UK are researching new methods and diagnosis with survival rates changing all the time. Cancer Research UK is aiming to bring more awareness and help to those who need it and those around them.

Gone Far too Soon

Cancer affects everyone, those who have the disease, their loved ones, family, and friends.   Losing my uncle and godfather back in December 2017 affected me greatly.  I didn’t have regular contact with him, losing him at the age of 65 was far too young especially when he had so much of his life yet to live. One of the positive outcomes of this tragedy was the reconnection with my cousin (his daughter). 

 After discussions with my husband on this subject, we decided to raise money and awareness for this marvelous Cancer charity.  We cannot bring our loved ones back we can support the work this charity does.  The aim is to help them to help others who are at present fighting this disease.

If you have any suggestions for the event or any questions please do not hesitate to contact My Special Event either by email, telephone or fill in our contact form and send me a message.

If you would like to hold your very own Charity Fundraiser then please contact My Special Event either by mobile or email to discuss your ideas and arrange a no obligation FREE consultation.  Alternatively visit the Charity Fundraising page by clicking on the link.

My Special Event is hoping to bring an exciting new adventure to Bognor Regis.  My Special Event is offering Pixels Parties to those avid gamers and nongamers who would like something different at their event. 

It can be a birthday, anniversary or another special occasion where you can have your very own Pixels Retro Video Gaming experience.  

There will be various packages available, so the best way to get started is to contact Zoe Pniewski of My Special Event and arrange a FREE consultation to discuss all your ideas.  From that consultation we can work out your timetable and your budget needed.  Every event is different and there is never an event that is too big or too small so give us a call.

Once the initial consultation has been made and the plan is put in action all we would ask is a small deposit and a signed contact before any work commences.  All equipment will be subject to availibility and will be PAT tested before installing into any event. 

All equipment used has either been brought or hired to My Special Event so we would ask that our clients take good care of it and any non-accidental damage that does occur will mean a fee will be charged to cover the cost of replacing the equipment, some of which dates back 50+ years and maybe irreplaceable.  This will be discussed and made clear at the initial meeting.
