Like many businesses, The National Videogame Museum in Castlegate, Sheffield faced an uncertain future as lockdown was put in place.
The unique museum which showcases how technology has changed in a short period of time is run by a charity. They feared that they didn’t have the resources to survive during these times, never mind reopen. Thanks to donations from Rockstar Games, Boneloaf, Jagex, Fusebox, THQ Nordic/Embracer Group, Ukie, Sumo, Craig Fletcher, Kelly Sumner and Thumbfood as well as the public, £130,000 has been raised.
This means that the museum is safe until at least July.
