GamesAid has thanked retailers for their support in making the PS3 Triple Pack a hit, with sales set to surpass £100,000.
The money raised has gone straight to support Paddington Academy, which this week posted impressive exam results in the GCSEs and A-Levels. 94 per cent of students in the school achieved five or more A* to C GCSEs (including English and Maths), an increase of 34 per cent compared to 2009.
In last week’s A-levels, the Academy boasted a 99 per cent pass rate.
“All of the trustees, ambassadors and members of GamesAid would like to thank all those who have helped make the PS3 Triple Pack a success and we really hope sales will continue through peak,” said GamesAid chairman Andy Payne.
“We are on schedule to make in excess of £100,000 from the initial launch sales which will be put towards our continued support of the Paddington Academy.
“In no particular order we’d like to thank Sega, Square Enix, Eidos, Codemasters, Sony Computer Entertainment, The Producers, Mastertronic, Indigo Pearl, Eurogamer Network, Intent Media, Future Publishing, Fink, GAME, Tesco, HMV, ASDA, Music Box, Game Connection, Morrisons, Insane Games, Advantage, Grainger Games, Simply Games, Amazon, Play.com, Barkman Computers, The Hut, Gameseek, Shopto, Dixons Stores Group, Start Up Software and many more.”
