Stream for St Helena is a way for gamers, streamers, and content creators to support local people facing incurable illness and bereavement by engaging with their community to raise money via a sponsored live stream.
As part of our Time to Remember campaign, this Autumn, we want you to play and stream the games of your childhood. We all have that one game that holds nothing but happy memories, and we want to celebrate those memories with a throwback stream!
Whether it's Pac-Man or Pong, Halo 3 or Mario Kart Wii why not dust off your controller and jump back in for old time sake.
