Popular British YouTuber Tom Cassell aka Syndicate is launching gaming fundraiser ‘GameStars’ for the children’s charity Make A Wish UK.

The vlogger, who runs the YouTube channels Syndicate and Life of Tom as well as the clothing range Syndicate Original, is supporting the charity after granting six wishes to seriously ill children and young people who wished to meet him.  

Those wish children include teenager Christopher who was diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome – a condition that affects his growth, heart and joints. His wish to meet Tom Cassell was granted late last year.  

Tom will be gaming with wish children at Manchester’s Science and Industry Museum this month. He’ll be asking his followers to sign up to support GameStars in a bid to win some gaming goodies when they reach their fundraising target. 

All funds raised will go towards granting life-changing wishes for seriously ill children at a time of unprecedented demand for wishes at the charity.  

Make-A-Wish Chief Executive Jason Suckley said: “For the young people we support, playing video games isn’t just a hobby, it can be a vital lifeline. It allows them to be themselves and stay connected with friends and family despite the confines of illness, hospital and treatment. It’s also a way of escaping the reality of life with a serious illness because, through gaming, seriously ill children and teenagers can experience a new identity where they are not ill and there are no limits to their abilities.

“More children than ever have turned to us in recent months, so we’re urging the whole gaming community to get behind us to help us to grant wishes by fundraising through GameStars.”

Make-A-Wish UK is a registered charity that was established in the UK in 1986. Since then the organisation has granted 14,000 wishes to seriously ill children all over the country.

Back in 2016, Syndicate was part of a YouTube controversy involving him promoting skin trading site CSGO Lotto but failing to disclose his ownership of it.
