Welcome to the GeeWizz Charitable Foundation

 

Gina Long MBE founded GeeWizz in November 2015 having been a charity voluntary fundraiser for over 40 years, raising millions. She felt it was important that she set up her own charity with the aim of providing specialist equipment to children, young adults and their families, living with a life-threatening condition, a disability or cancer. At GeeWizz, we pride ourselves on 100% transparent giving, where every £1 donated or raised is carefully and transparently spent, helping change the lives of our many GeeWizz families.

Since November 2015, GeeWizz has provided many Suffolk and Norfolk families, along with supporting special needs schools, with equipment we purchase ranging from specialist electric wheelchairs, to a prosthetic sports blade, bespoke-designed car seats, eye gazers, electric beds and so much more. We also fund desperately needed physiotherapy for those who no longer receive support from the NHS, due to financial cuts.

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

About GeeWizz

GeeWizz was set up by experienced and passionate charity campaigner and fundraiser, Gina Long MBE, to create a platform to purchase much-needed equipment for children in Suffolk and throughout the region helping two specific groups:

  • Helping children and young adults with disabilities, along with giving their families support and those who are affected by cancer, either directly or indirectly.
  • Along with helping support essential cancer research into the disease, especially Sarcoma.

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.”
