New charity aims to put a smile on faces
A CHARITABLE foundation has been set up in memory of Guernsey woman Georgie Le Prevost, who died in a road traffic accident last July.
The purpose of the Smile for Georgie Foundation is to make a difference in the local community through carrying out small acts of kindness.
Georgie’s father, Andre, said that his wife, Jenny, and daughter, Annie, had been overwhelmed by the support and generosity of Guernsey people when they undertook a charity tandem parachute jump with Jersey Skydive.
It prompted the family to do something more permanent in Georgie’s memory.
‘As it is National Random Acts of Kindness Day on Saturday we felt it was the right time to promote the foundation’s launch,’ he said.
‘Those who knew Georgie will appreciate the positive contribution she made to life and the smile she had for everyone.
‘The foundation intends to reflect her personality in all that it does and looks forward to receiving ongoing public support that will ensure its success.’
One of the charity’s first events will be a boat trip to Herm in June for up to 100 children. It is intended that this will become an annual event.
Two Degrees North, Orchard PR and Collas Crill have supported the foundation by offering their services free of charge.
The foundation can be contacted by emailing Smile@suremail.gg.
