Charity Begins Life-Changing Build for Suffolk Family
Bury St Edmunds-based GeeWizz Charity have declared ‘all systems go’ on an exciting and life-changing build for Jasmine Moxom and her family. Following an appeal made by the charity, donations have been made to fund a project that will allow Jasmine, who suffers from Spastic Cerebral Palsy, and her family to live safely in their home.
The 6-year old from Beck Row, Suffolk has defied the expectations of medical professionals who predicted her to never walk or talk. As a result of a life-changing operation and twice weekly physiotherapy, Jasmine is able to walk along with the assistance of splints and her walking aid Buddy.
However, narrow doorframes and uneven flooring makes it dangerous for Jasmine to independently manoeuvre herself around the home, and she becomes anxious if in a separate room from her mother, Sally.
‘The Jasmine Appeal’ has seen many people in the community donate to help fund this project for the family. Yet the kindness does not stop there, local contractor Neil Hempstead from NB Hempstead Building Services has pulled together with GeeWizz, to complete the works that begin on Monday 11thMarch. The build which is estimated to take 4 weeks, is also supported by Capricorn Carpets, Bury St Edmunds and Graham, a painter and decorator.
Crystal Barber, Manager of GeeWizz Charity, says “It is so heart-warming to see local people rally together and provide such a fantastic project for a family in need.”
“I am delighted that we are able to carry out these works on the family’s home, allowing Jasmine the opportunity to continue progressing with her walking and physiotherapy, and grant her the independence she deserves as she gets older.”
