Our Criteria

GeeWizz focuses on providing specialist equipment to children and young adults up to the age of 21, living in Suffolk and Norfolk and with life-threatening conditions, a disability or cancer.

We are able to make a difference through purchasing specialist electric wheelchairs, bespoke-designed car seats, electric beds, mobility hoists and so much more.

George Woodward

George was born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 2, which affects motor neurons in the spinal cord and eventually leads to severe disability. Inspired by his enthusiasm and zest for life, we supported George with a powered wheelchair from money raised for GeeWizz by the 2015 Sir Bobby’s Online Auction, now named the Ultimate Charity Auction.

Luke Cattermole

Luke has cerebral palsy and epilepsy – meaning he is unable to walk or talk and do so many of the things that 12-year-olds would take for granted. GeeWizz has supported Luke with a much-needed portable hoist and sensory garden items.

Luke was  supported by a special exhibition showcasing the work of renowned Bury St Edmunds photographer Tom Murray, jointly hosted by Andrew and Gemma Speed and their companies St Edmundsbury Financial Services Ltd, Sheridans, 3SQ and Larksbridge. A fundraiser was also organised by Pascal and Karine Canevet, owners of Maison Bleue in Bury St Edmunds, to commemorate the Queen’s 90th birthday while SEH Builders kindly installed all the garden sensory equipment.

Oliver’s Car Seat

Oliver was diagnosed with a very rare brain condition, called Vein of Galen Malformation, and underwent three brain operations by the age of just five months old. We have purchased Oliver a bespoke car seat to support his head and other needs.

Andrew and Mick Fulcher

Brothers Andrew, affectionately known as Sprock, and Mick Fulcher suffer from Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy – a severe muscle-wasting condition. GeeWizz helped get eye-gazers funded for the brothers, which allow them to operate their computers using an eye-operated communication and control system.

Daniel’s SOS Renovation

Daniel is 14 years old and sadly suffers from autism and Dravet Syndrome, which is a form of paediatric epilepsy and can cause him to have multiple seizures every day. He currently sleeps in his living room.

GeeWizz has brought together 25 local businesses to carry out a full-blown home restoration to aid Daniel’s quality of life.
