CK2A3826-LARGEWhizz-kidz celebrated their 25th Anniversary at Hampton Court Palace with a Family day out for the Whizz-kidz, their parents and siblings and long term supporters of the Charity.

20150614_133803Nina Hosain from London ITV news introduced the whole proceedings and Charlotte gave the Give it Away sponsored Awards to young people who have shown outstanding merit, leadership and resilience in the face of many difficulties.

Charlotte then presented a cheque for £55,000 to George Fielding, Chair of the Whizz-kidz Board which will be used to fund approximately 20 new state of the art wheelchairs for children and young people in her area.

20150614_155835George made a moving speech about how different his life is because he has a chair designed for his needs and how important it is to be given back the independence which such a chair can provide.  He proved its skills (and his) on the dance floor with Charlotte later!
