The pair raised the money by doing a 19-hour live stream on Twitch.

The original goal of the stream was to raise £200, which was hit within the first hour. As such, the pair increased it to £500, a target that was achieved after three hours of streaming.
In response to the generosity of viewers, the goal was again increased, this time to £1,000. The total was raised with 10 hours of the stream still remaining.
By the end, the pair raised £1,300 for the British Red Cross, a charity dedicated to helping people in crisis throughout the world.
