Our wargaming club ‘The Wargaming Monkeys’ hosted a small gaming convention called ‘Wargaming for life’. The goal was to raise money for the Kinderkankerfonds, this is a Belgian organisation wich helps children who suffer from cancer. Various Belgian wargaming clubs attended the convention and collected money for this charity.
