Dice Masters Vs Cancer

For a number of years now The Ministry of Dice podcast has been involved with the “Gaming Vs Cancer” initiative; a UK based charitable collective that raises money for Cancer Research UK. There are events throughout the year, however the main event is an organised play convention held in Southampton during November, with proceeds from entry tickets and prize raffles going into the pot for the charity. We’ve raised money for 3 years now, but Dice Masters tournaments have been a part of the convention for years before hand and was the location of a number of WKOs prior to our involvement.
Sadly this year, due to the current worldwide circumstances, all the face-to-face fund raising activity planned has been cancelled. There were plans to hold a Spring fundraising event and a Winter event that just cannot take place under the current UK restrictions.
This is serious news – the UK’s Institute of Fundraising released a round up of studies that highlighted some frightening statistics. Here’s one example that stands out: charities are expecting a 24% reduction in their total income from the UKs heaviest lockdown period (between between March – May), equating to an estimated £12.4 billion loss in charitable funds raised. (“Impact on the Charity Sector During Coronavirus” – June 20th 2020). Many other subsequent studies have confirmed the same – so despite the convention being cancelled we have decided to capitalise on the Dice Master’s community’s resourcefulness when it come to online play and hold our own little fundraiser to make some small contribution to the cause.

We are organising an online Dice Masters play event, but we were asked if there could be some way for additional donations to be made - so here it is!
