CIRENCESTER mobile games company Neon Play is helping disabled students keep in touch with technology.

The company came to the rescue when it heard that students from National Star College were missing out on using emerging technologies such as high definition video playback and some of the latest versions of social media applications.

The company donated a new touch screen PC to the college which supports young people with disabilities.

Neon Play employs 21 full-time workers and three students and also donates a percentage of its profits to local charities.

CEO Oli Christie said he was blown away by the National Star students.

“I had the most incredible time going round the college and I was incredibly moved by what I saw,” he said.

“All the team there do an incredible job. We look forward to helping them again in the future and to building a long and meaningful relationship.”

Head of fundraising for National Star Kate Green said the charity was thrilled to be partnered with Neon Play.

“Oli and his team have helped put Gloucestershire on the map and they understand completely how computers and technology can improve the lives of our students. Donations such as these make a real difference to the students’ lives.”
