London – Gamesman Managing Director Mark Smith got into training for February’s ICE with a 10 mile walk from Selhurst Park, home of his beloved Crystal Palace Football Club, to Premiership rivals Chelsea, helping to raise over £20,000 in memory of former school mate Dominic King who sadly died from a rare form of Leukaemia in 1987 when aged just 15-years.

Mark, who was one of 26 intrepid walkers, a troupe which included his 9-year old son Daniel and Gamesman Sales Manager Martin Rigby, said: „First and foremost a huge thank you from Daniel and myself for the very generous donations that we have received so far. The grand total from all of the walkers is now in excess of £20,000, which is a magnificent achievement. Chris Powlson and

Liam Connery from Crystal Palace Football Club deserve a special mention for their hard work and enthusiasm in helping to organise the event and supporting this initiative.“

He added: „I contacted the family of Dominic King, who died when we were at school together and they have been so moved by this fund-raising effort, all of these years after their tragic loss. Dominic’s oldest brother joined us at our first pit stop and enjoyed meeting the Crystals Cheerleaders three of whom did the entire walk raising over £1,500 for the cause.

„The Royal Marsden hospital, which cared for Dominic during his illness, have been delighted and impressed by our efforts and we will present their Cancer Charity with a final cheque at a Crystal Palace home game in the new year. Anyone who feels they can contribute to the sponsorship can do so via www.justgiving.com/Mark-Smith98. My huge thanks to everyone within the international gaming industry who have donated so generously.“
