Students give up summer holidays to support GeeWizz

Kind-hearted students have been praised after giving up some of their summer holidays for a Suffolk charity. A group of ten young people took part in the National Citizen Service to support the GeeWizz charity after organising a charity car wash at Fornham Business Court. They also helped plan prizes for the Ultimate Charity Auction, the global online fundraiser which returns in October to raise money for GeeWizz and the League Manager Association Charity. The charity will take these ideas and approach the relevant individuals and businesses from the world of sport, celebrity and lifestyle to see if they will support this year’s Ultimate Charity Auction. Gina Long, founder of the GeeWizz charity said: “It is so heartening to see young people take part in the National Citizen Service and we are delighted they chose to support GeeWizz and the Ultimate Charity Auction. I would like to say a big thank you to all these inspiring youngsters.” The students spent four weeks on the National Citizen Service scheme – two weeks away from home and two weeks on charity projects. In total, each team member had to complete 30 hours of charity work or volunteering. The students involved were William Frost, Alex Povey, Alex Robb, Thomas Allison, Nathan Moulton, Luke Green, Alisha Ambrose, Annaliese Hill, Ellie Deeley and Georgina Love. This year’s Ultimate Charity Auction takes place between Thursday 18th October and Thursday 8th November.
