Gina Long MBE founded GeeWizz in November 2015, having been a charity fundraiser for over 40 years. She felt that it was vital for her own charity to maintain a clear ethos of 100% transparency, with significant control of costs to ensure that every £1 donated or raised is carefully spent and focused on helping to change lives.
In order to maximise its support GeeWizz has a distinct focus and expertise in providing specialist equipment to children and young adults up to the age of 21, living in Suffolk and Norfolk, with life-threatening conditions, a disability or cancer. Each year the GeeWizz team is focused on raising £200,000 so that it can make a difference to many local families.
We are able to make a difference through purchasing specialist electric wheelchairs, bespoke-designed car seats, electric beds, mobility hoists and so much more.
GeeWizz adds so much magic to the lives of families living locally in Suffolk and Norfolk. It is an absolute privilege and honour to help change the lives of local children and their families, this wouldn’t be possible without the support of our incredible donors, fundraisers and sponsors.
A note from Gina…
“I have always believed very strongly in the positive difference charities can make to individuals, families and communities. It’s an absolute privilege and honour to help change the lives of local children, young adults, and their families, who are living with a life-threatening disability, or are affected by cancer.
Meeting and working with such amazing, inspirational children, young adults and their families, is the greatest gift I have ever been given, and is a real highlight of my forty years as a campaigner and fundraiser. They leave me in awe, and seeing their happiness shine out of them after being supported by GeeWizz, is the greatest reward of all.”
