CHIPS is a unique charity which was formed by the gaming industry and which encapsulates many of its stand-out characteristics. Since its formation, in summer 2001 the charity has raised over £2m thanks to the wonderful generosity of its corporate supporters.
Linda Linsay, co-founder of CHIPS, said: ‘Despite all of the presentations that I have made over the years, it never fails to move me when I witness the life-changing impact that one of our powered wheelchairs has, not only on the individual recipient but on the family unit as a whole, comprising parents, carers, grandparents and siblings. The sad reality is that the demand for powered wheelchairs will always exceed our ability to supply them but with the help of the industry we can help to close that gap. On behalf of CHIPS and our Trustees I am delighted to support these Awards which showcase the very positive nature of the industry.”
