"Doing anything next February? Clear your diaries for this one - it’s going to be bigger than Bieber! It’s our GameBlast weekend, where we’re inviting people of all ages across the UK to take on the challenge of a video game marathon to help people with disabilities benefit from the fun and inclusion of games."
