We raised over £36,500 in 2023, thank you!
hugs.tf is an annual charity live stream event hosted by a friendly bunch of Charity Loving Hat Enthusiasts benefiting SpecialEffect.
Over the last decade, we have raised over £40,000 through events related to our favourite game: Team Fortress 2.
TF2’s community is the heart of our operation, and we love creating events that everybody can enjoy – whilst also supporting great causes.
SpecialEffect put fun and inclusion back into the lives of people with physical disabilities by helping them to play video games.
By using technology ranging from modified joypads to eye-control, they are finding a way for people to play to the very best of their abilities. But they are not just doing it for fun. By levelling the playing field, they are bringing families and friends together and having a profoundly positive impact on therapy, confidence and rehabilitation.
