Richard Greenhalgh, Chairman said: “The year has seen continued, rapid growth in our engagement with the private sector. We now have a significant number of major corporate partnerships, and this area will continue to be a key aspect of our work as we move forward. In the UK, this past year has seen many achievements. We did a number of things to mark our 25th anniversary.” He added: “This has been a very strong 12 months financially. Our year-on-year increase in non-emergency funding continued.”

Co-founder Lana Thompson: “The IGA’s always takes pride in raising awareness for worthy and charitable causes, some of which many gamers and industry insiders can relate to. We are confident that 2012’s glittering gala will be one to remember, as we capture every special moment whilst providing some unique networking opportunities across the online and land-based sectors. We should all take a moment to also remember those who are less fortunate than ourselves, donations to the charities are voluntary and guests can give as much or little as they wish.”
