About Special Effect
"By using technology ranging from modified joypads to eye-control, we're finding a way for people to play to the very best of their abilities. But we're not just doing it for fun. By levelling the playing field, we're bringing families and friends together and having a profoundly positive impact on therapy, confidence and rehabilitation."

About Maddy and Daff
Madison Matthews-Williams & Dafydd Lorwerth Matthews-Williams are a married couple from North Wales originally but have since moved to Llanelli in South Wales. Them along with their daughter Celyn are proud of doing the right thing and helping others. This year they have taken up the mantle of No Mercy Wales and have 24 hours of gaming, marital bliss, energy drinks and getting repeatedly shot by 12 year olds and strangers on the PlayStation 4 version of Call of Duty: Warzone to look forward to.
"After Celyn’s recent acts of generosity we have realised we can do more to help those in need and therefore we’re doing what we do best… sitting down"
