About Hugs.tf

Hugs.tf is an annual charity live stream event benefiting Special Effect: the gamer's charity.

Over the last 5 years, we have raised over £20,000 through events related to our favourite game: Team Fortress 2. During the event, we offer high-intensity show matches with our friends in the European competitive Team Fortress 2 community, alongside a number of casual, creative, and public events.

In our 5th year, hugs.tf is hoping to smash every year combined and raise £25,000 for Special Effect.

More information about the event and guest list will be confirmed soon.

Hugs.tf will take place on 21/22 April 2018 on our twitch page.

Special Effect

Originally inside of the Gameblast weekend, hugs.tf now acts as a standalone event raising money for Special Effect's continued services in providing access to gaming, regardless of disability. By giving everybody the means to participate, they kick-start rehabilitation, inclusion and confidence.

Gameblast in 2018 raised over £200,000 through a weekend of sponsored gaming streams, and once again pulled in huge sponsors such as Multiplay, Faceit, Ukie, Insert Coin, and Game to highlight its status as the premier annual gaming charity event.
