Save Point X

Create your Fundraising Page Here!

Welcome to Save Point X, the 10th anniversary edition of the UK’s largest 24-hour gaming marathon.

Last year’s marathon raised an incredible £23,000 and this year, we’re hoping to make Save Point X bigger and better than ever before.


Want to go solo? Team up with some colleagues or pals? Anything’s allowed as long as it adds up to 24 hours.


Whether you’re crazy for Crash Bandicoot, keen for KerPlunk, mad for Monopoly, really in to Role Play or eager for Eye Spy – any and all games count!


Save Point X will run over the weekend of the 11th,12th and 13th of October.


In its previous 9 years, Save Point has raised an extraordinary £127,000 to help support the 110,000 children and young people that visit The Royal Hospital for Sick Children every year, as well as the many others that visit healthcare settings throughout the Lothians, Borders and Fife.

It quickly grew into a major fixture of Scotland’s gaming community. Several individuals, clubs, families and workplaces have taken part, taking on some unique challenges as part of the annual event.

It has also had the backing of key industry players like local games giant Rockstar North, who have supported Save Point every year.


Ready. Get Set. GAME.

“Having a child made me realise how vital the work of Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity is, providing the extra support children need so they can be listened to and treated like children, not just patients”.

Tom Freeman, Organiser of Save Point.
