Well of Goodwill - Featured Charity

This week, we’re celebrating one of the amazing charities in the Well of Goodwill: AbleGamers.

We’ll be featuring them all over our social media channels this week – and we’re giving you the opportunity to ask them all sorts of questions about the great things they do for young people.

Head over to our forums, where we’ve set up a special thread for you to ask the AbleGamers team anything all this week, or take part in a special AMA on Reddit with them on 4th November at 6pm GMT. We’ll open up the thread around 5.50pm, so keep an eye out on /r/runescape.


Enjoy!

Have fun, and join the discussion on the forums.
