What Is TheRockinR Gaming Charity?

We are a registered charity in England & Wales 1178420. Founded in May 2018, in memory of Reece ‘TheRockinR’ Miree. The charity was founded to help minimise the effects of stress and anxiety experienced by children & young people receiving treatments and procedures in hospitals.

Who We Are

Founded by Reece’s family. After losing our 11-year-old son in March 2018 to a brain tumour known as DIPG. TheRockinR was Reece’s online gamer-tag. Whilst Reece was staying in hospital, we identified there were specific ways interactive games could help children with hospital visits and appointments.

What We Do

We help reduce the impact of hospitalisation and illness in young patients whilst making them and their families feel at ease. By offering a welcome distraction to procedures and treatments, giving a sense of normality to those spending time in hospital whilst maintaining joy and contentment.

Why it's Important

Undergoing medical treatment can often be a scary & isolating experience, especially for young patients. There is a special need for age-appropriate coping tools in hospitals, interactive gaming and technology offers a huge range of benefits throughout children’s and young peoples medical environments.

We’re helping 28,470 children and young people per year!

Our goal is to help health and care professionals communicate more effectively with children and young people whilst minimising stress and anxiety for patients receiving treatments and procedures in hospitals.
