“Saying ‘thank you’ is such an important part of any charity and we wanted everyone who has supported GeeWizz over the last 12 months, and beyond, to know how much we appreciate it,” she added.

We also wanted to invite the families we have helped - as part of the charity promoting transparent fundraising in every way possible.
