Retro Computers Honoured To Be Recognised For Donation to the Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital

Just recently, 20 Twitter gamer’s have come together to #HelpAmelia fight cancer. Amelia is a young girl requiring £152,000 to have surgery outside of the UK as it is cheaper than using the NHS who will unlikely provide the support required. When a friend of the family got wind of the JustGiving campaign, he asked ourselves along with these other gamers to help in any way possible.

It was decided that a separate giveaway of a huge stack of donated console’s, games and other gaming related product’s would be given to one lucky person that entered Amelia’s JustGiving page and donated £10 or more and left their Facebook or Twitter details and added #GamersUnite in the notes.

One of the item’s offered for the draw, came from Retro Computers. A (1 of 5) hand-built prototype of the upcoming Sinclair Vega+ handheld console. It was at this point we were also made aware that they had also become involved with Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Here are the team’s comments that make us very proud for them.

It’s not every day we at Retro Computers get to be part of something much bigger than ourselves, but the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity is number one on that list – personally as well as professionally. Amit Aggarwal, Director of Corporate Partnerships, said: “On behalf of everyone at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children¹s Charity, I’d like to thank Retro Computers for their generous donation of £20,000 to the charity. Their support will help us make a difference to patients and families across the UK.”

Dr David Levy, Chairman of Retro Computers Ltd, said today: “We’re delighted that our company has been able to support the hospital charity and its great work for sick children. For me personally, our support means an enormous amount because the hospital saved my life when I was 3 years old.” Suzanne Martin, Managing Director at Retro Computers, said; “We’re not just proud, we’re deeply honoured to be able to support Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. For us, success is only important when we get to share its fruits around, to do something that makes a positive difference to the world. At the end of the day, our only real legacy, as an individual or a business, is what we can do for others.”
