What is GameCon?

GameCon is a charity gaming event planned by Hartlepool College students annually for Changing Futures North East. Every year GameCon gets even bigger and better!

All funds raised from GameCon go to a good cause! GameCon is dedicated to supporting the work of Changing Futures North East which supports young people across Hartlepool.
