Festive Knits and Silly Sweaters worn for GeeWizz

 In News, Past Events

The countdown to Christmas is on, especially at nearly 40 companies and schools who all dusted off their Christmas jumpers on Friday 13th December, to raise funds for the Suffolk charity GeeWizz.

GeeWizz Charity supports children and young adults living in Suffolk and some areas of Norfolk, who sadly suffer from a life-threatening condition, a disability or cancer. They fund specialist equipment such as electric wheelchairs, portable hoists and bespoke car seats, along with various equipment for SEN departments at schools and colleges in the Suffolk region.

However, it wasn’t just those at work or school who took part, GeeWizz received photos from all kinds of participants at home, including dogs and even a horse!

Gina Long MBE, founder of GeeWizz Charity says, “We are so grateful to all of those who took part in our second GeeWizz Christmas Jumper Day. Your donations will have a huge impact on the children and young people we support in your communities.”

“We would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year!”
