MARKET Rasen writer Georgia Twynham is setting out to bring a bit of sunshine into the lives of children across the country.
Since publishing her first two books, the child-friendly author has visited more than 6,000 schoolchildren.
Her enthusiasm is infectious and now she has been chosen by the Royal Variety Club charity as an ambassador for their Sunshine Week.
“I feel extremely privileged and honoured to have been chosen as an ambassador for Sunshine Week,” said Georgia.
“It is a huge responsibility to represent such a prestigious and well-known charity.
“I am so excited and am really looking forward to working with other people and travelling the country in this new role.”
Georgia will be doing what she does best, interacting with children as she visits schools to promote the charity’s work.
“I hope lots of people will be inspired to get involved and support the work this charity does in our communities,” added Georgia.
Sunshine Week takes place from September 19 to 23, with the aim of bringing children together nationwide as they create a ray of sunshine to light up the lives of disabled and disadvantaged children across the country.
All the money raised will help the Variety Club Children’s Charity to continue providing specialist Sunshine Coaches, wheelchairs, sports equipment and all sorts of other practical solutions.
These will help to give disabled and disadvantaged children and young people, independence, freedom and hope.
A new website has now been launched which will have everything needed for schools to get involved with Sunshine Week.
But it’s not just schools that can get involved.
Support is welcomed from anyone who wants to take part - an individual, a family, church or faith group, nursery, university, company, supermarket, post office - whoever you are and whatever you do, the charity would love to welcome you on board.
One of the features on the website is an A to Z of fund raising ideas to help participants decide what to do.
Or maybe you could think of something new and exciting to bring a ray of sunshine to this charity event.
