Leading East Anglia motor group John Banks has announced exciting plans to support the GeeWizz charitable foundation in 2018. Melanie Banks-Browne, Chief Executive at John Banks, said the company was delighted to support GeeWizz’s commitment to helping local families – after naming them as their charity of the year throughout the seven dealerships in Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. The group has announced plans to hold a number of events across the two counties to support the work of the charity and will involve not only their staff but their valued customers as well. Melanie Banks-Browne said it was important for the local family-run business to support a charitable foundation that gives back to the local community. She added: “I have known Gina Long MBE for many years and have seen the difference she has made to many families with her charity work in the area. “Her and Andrew really dedicate themselves to making a difference. We also like the fact that GeeWizz prides itself on 100% transparent giving, where 91.5p out of every £1 donated or raised goes straight to changing the lives of local families. I am delighted that the John Banks Group can help with fundraising for this wonderful charity. “John Banks have always supported many community projects with sponsorship and support across East Anglia and will continue to do so where possible.” GeeWizz founder Gina Long MBE said: “Since GeeWizz was founded in December 2015, we have been wonderfully supported by our generous local community. This has allowed us to directly change so many local lives and really make a difference. “I am truly grateful to Melanie Banks-Browne and the team at John Banks for their support throughout 2018. We look forward to supporting them every step of the way.” GeeWizz provides support and helps fund the provision of equipment for families living with a disability or cancer throughout East Anglia.
