Where am i from: South Africa

Where do i live now: In the UK

Nickname: Buddha

Pet hate: Loud eating noises.

Why am i streaming: I started streaming during lockdown to host community events and let people unwind from the reality that was Lockdown during the pandemic. I have fallen inlove with it and I feel that I have helped people cope with anxiety and depression as a result.

What games do i play regularly: I will give most games a go, will do abit more extensive research on the ones we have to pay for but PvP is where the magic happens.

FUNDRAISE FOR OUR NEW HEDGEHOG RESCUE VEHICLE

One of the most beneficial assets for us to rescue hedgehogs is our Jimny Rescue Car. Our hedgehog rescue vehicle is used to rescue over 250 hedgehogs each year, and also release nearly all those hedgehogs back in to the wild again. Our current Suzuki Jimny (featured in the above video) is 20 years old and was purchased by one of the Trustees for the Charity to rescue hedgehogs. Although it still runs, it's showing its age and desperately needs replacing.

Please let us know if you would like your fundraiser to go towards our new rescue vehicle. Any amount raised by your fundraiser would be hugely appreciated. All fundraiser streams that raise £1,200 or more will have their Stream name and Avatar printed on to our new Hedgehog Rescue Vehicle.


We are hoping to raise enough funds to purchase a new rescue vehicle by the end of 2022. If the amount raised does not manage to hit the goal. The money raised will be used to purchase the best second hand rescue vehicle we can buy.

The rear luggage space can be expanded by folding the rear seats which is perfect for transporting rescued hedgehogs, and the side opening door makes it easy to access. The Jimny is built for off-road functionality. Its strong square body expresses its off road ability and robustness and the 4x4 is invaluable when we drive in woods and fields to rescue hedgehogs.

Jimny has huge amounts of space in the back for such a small car.
