Prepare yourself for Nerdvana XII, the final one before the end of the academic year! We are all about celebrating everything geeky and nerdy in the name of charity. We are a group of collaborating societies, coming together for Nerdvana, with our goal to donate 60% of all of the proceeds to Special Effect and donate 40% to Mermaids. **

We are abiding by tradition and donating to Special Effect, but owing to recent news and the 31st of March being Trans Visibility Day, we wanted to give a percentage of the earnings from Nerdvana to a charity that supports the trans community. Mermaids is a charity that aims to educate wider society on gender identity and offers safeguarding opportunities to the LGBTQ+ community. Our traditional charity of choice, Special Effect, is a charity that advocates for better inclusion in gaming, as well as working on new technology to improve the lives of people who live with physical challenges.

Nerdvana XII, the last one of the academic year, will be held upstairs of the Union Building from 7 PM on the 31st of March till 7 PM on the 1st of April. Here, a whole 24 hours packed full of activities dedicated to charity will be hosted. The ticket for the event will cost £5, with the link for such a ✨ quality product ✨ coming soon.

With all the talk of cool activities, let’s get into that, shall we? For the whole 24 hours, you can find out about:

> A variety of video game consoles in Third Space for your enjoyment

> If you need a place to chill, come to the sensory room! Come and calm down from all the excitement and enjoy the vibes.
