Gaming for Action

OitC - Gaming for Action

In partnership with Philtronics, over the next two months we will be fundraising for Action for Children with our “Gaming for Action” event to raise vital funds to continue supporting young peoples mental health within Wales.

So far the partnership has supported over 3000 young people become more resilient, build self esteem and understand mental wellbeing.

Businesses or groups can sign up in teams of four, pledging a minimum of £50 to enter. There will be further options available to sponsor players or to donate.

We’ll create the fixtures throughout the coming weeks, with weekly updates as each group competes to be crowned “Gaming for Action” Champions in a special event hosted at the Stadium.


We will be competing through 2 games:

Rocket League

Call of Duty Modern warfare (2019)

There will be a winner for each game of the above AND an overall winner!


We are hopeful we can raise a minimum of £1000 to go towards the incredible work done by Action for Children Including their hugely successful “Bouncing Back” programme which works to support and improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people in secondary schools.

Through a number of engaging workshops, the project provides basic support and knowledge to a wide range of young people, in particular focusing on three key areas: understanding and empathy about mental health, coping strategies and self-care, and the importance of talking and dealing with mental health concerns. 

At the end of each Bouncing Back programme, participants receive a Mental Health First Aid Kit, providing them with resources that support them to manage their mood and sustain improvements in their emotional wellbeing. Feedback questionnaires following the delivery of each programme will also help us to identify those young people who may be at risk of requiring a higher-tier intervention.


The link below will allow people to sign up – Sign up closes on the 13th December! So don’t miss out!
