Demon Media is a society at De Montfort University (DMU) which annually hosts a livestream to raise money for different charities. 

This year, the livestream from 9am until 9pm, raised money for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People and Shelter, which will be equally split between the two.

Joe Molineaux, a member of Demon Media, said: “It is two amazing charities that we are raising money here for at the RAG event.”  

Rainbows Hospice is an East Midlands based charity that provide support for children and young people with life-threatening and/or life-shortening illnesses and their families. 

The Shelter Charity provide help and support for those struggling with housing issues or homelessness as a part of their aim to defend the human right to a safe home. 

The livestream consisted of several events such as: RAGMaster, based on Channel 4’s Taskmaster show, live music from local artists, Demon Film Festival and more.

Tom Gibbs, a member of Demon Media, said: “The day has been good. It was a little bit rough at the start as we had a few technical problems but we are up and running at full speed now and we are moving along with the broadcast really nicely.” 

Despite a few technical problems at the beginning of the 12 hour event, Demon Media were able to entertain, especially with the showcasing of musicians: Kieran Leigh, Roz Macgregor-Devlin, Isaac Peacock and the band Ethereal. 

Also, a Demon Film Festival promoted and showed short films created by DMU students.
