ToyNews team to take on 24 hour Twister marathon for NSPCC's Big Board Game Day

24 hours. One poor Twister mat. Three supple-ish toy journalists. One very good cause.

The ToyNews team (Billy, Rob and Jade) is raising money for the NSPCC's Big Board Game Day by limbering up and playing Twister for 24 hours straight.

We're setting ourselves the rule that one member of the team has to be playing at any one time, so that stretching, food intake and a cheeky wee are all possible. And there'll be an independent pair of eyes with us too, to make sure we actually do the whole 24 hours.

While this will likely result in us forever breaking out in a cold sweat at the sound of 'right foot, red', it's for a great cause, and the NSPCC's Big Board Game Day, taking place on May 27th, is a fun initiative.

So we'd love for you to support the NSPCC, and our mad Twister session, by pledging anything you can. We massively appreciate it. You can head to our fundraising page by clicking here.

Also, 24 hours is a long time to play Twister by ourselves, so if you'd like to join us at the Every Hotel in Piccadilly on Friday, May 27th for a game or two, email and we'll schedule you in. Just think, the state we'll be in, you'll have a great chance of winning.

Anywhoo, thanks for reading, please donate if you can and hopefully see you down on the mat on Friday, May 27th.
