Christmas Appeal 2016

Project Type:
Showcase Event
Jersey Christmas Appeal
December 31, 2016
Raising money for the Jersey Christmas appeal, we took to the streets of St Helier to offer the general public an Introduction to VR, and provided many with an opportunity to try this technology for the first time.
"Discover a universe of possibilities and explore the world like never before - The Introduction to Virtual Reality can take you to faraway lands, the centre of a Cirque du Soleil performance, or bring you face to face with a giant from a bygone era."

Our very first charity event, organised to raise money for the Jersey Christmas Appeal, was a resounding success. The appeal is a local body that provides financial assistance to the most disadvantaged individuals and families in Jersey to cover the costs of the festive period.

Using our mobile equipment, we set up in the centre of St Helier and invited the public to pick up a headset and enter virtual reality - something that most participants had never tried before. The atmosphere was fantastic, and throughout the course of the afternoon, we had over fifty participants of all ages and from all backgrounds.

Whilst the experience was offered at no charge, the donation buckets were out in force, and we are very happy to say we helped the Jersey Christmas Appeal 2016 raise a record breaking total of over £150,000!

"A massive thank you to all those who took part and made donations - we hope to see you all in the near future!​"
