James Crofts We're answering the 'Call of Duty', assembling our squad and taking part in a live streamed, 24 hour, gaming marathon to fundraise at a social distance for the Mountbatten Hospice Coronavirus Appeal. Help us raise much needed funds for Mountbatten.

Watch (and laugh at) our 2 squads completing in endless Battle Royale action on the insanely popular 'Call of Duty WARZONE' from 09.00 on May 16th for 24 Hours non stop with full game play commentary, programmed features, donation incentives and much more.

Players include; Jim Downer, Benjamin Wilson, Mike Wilson, David Burton, Charles Crofts, James Crofts, Dan White, Luke Belcher and Leon Phillips with plenty of guests coming in to lend a hand...

Please note the nature of the game means viewing of the stream may not be suitable for children, although game settings will be applied to minimise graphic/gory content as much as possible.

Links to stream posted on this event page, along with team and fundraising updates in the lead up and during the challenge.

Below is some commentary on the Mountbatten Coronavirus Appeal.

Mountbatten nurses are helping to free up Isle of Wight NHS trust hospital beds by caring for as many patients as possible who need end of life care at home. But they don't have the equipment they need to protect themselves and care for the growing number of patients that need them.

Nobody could have planned for Coronavirus and Mountbatten nurses need your help now. They urgently need protective clothing and specialised equipment to meet patient's needs at home. Please help them to care for our Island community as this life-threatening disease is affecting us all.

By donating today, you will help Mountbatten nurses to remain on the front line, giving patients the pain relief, care and compassion they need to live out their final days in dignity and comfort.

Thanks for visiting our page - hope you watch - and stay safe everyone! James Crofts
