A YOUNG PlayStation enthusiast is set to give up gaming for lent to boost an autism charity.

Nathan Smith, a year seven student at Clacton County High School, will be testing his resolve to the limit by packing away his console for more than a month.

His two brothers both have autism and attend Market Fields School.

And self-confessed gaming addict Nathan is aiming to raise as much sponsorship cash as possible for the school and local charity Autism Anglia.

His PlayStation will stay off from March 5 until April 17.
