We at Georgina’s Gang are now focusing our fundraising efforts to purchase a much needed specialised profiling bed for this brave young boy Josh. We would like you to take some time to read a bit about Joshua and hope you can help us make this happy young boy become even more independent. The few pictures below show how much he has had to endure but he is still full of happiness, let’s help him continue along this path.
Josh was born with a very rare condition called Hemime…galencephaly (literally “half big brain”). This means that the left hand side of his brain didn’t develop properly and is of little or no use to him – the right hand side of his brain has to try and do all the work. The condition almost always results in serious epilepsy requiring surgery to avoid life-threatening seizures. Josh has had two brain surgeries at Great Ormand Street and also had to go through double hip surgery in 2014 to help him to walk.
Josh’s mum says: ‘The bed that Josh needs will provide him with a completely safe and comfortable environment. It will lower right down to ground level so that he can independently get out of bed, and it will raise right up to adult waist height so that we can change Josh safely and comfortably. It will have safety panes in case he has a seizure, but also bars at a higher level for him to pull up on, to help with his ongoing challenge to stand and walk unaided. This bed will completely change Josh’s life, and ours. He absolutely loves to stand with help and so being able to get in and out of bed by himself will be a huge step in his progress. We can’t wait to see how this everyday activity improves his development’.

We would like to thank Emily Henningsen for nominating Georgina’s Gang for her forms cake sale at Ladies College, they must be deprived of cakes there because apparently they sold nearly all of them in 10 minutes! Somehow their principal Mrs Clancy was also persuaded to allow 20 buckets of water to be tipped over her head! Raffle tickets were sold for the privilege. A very impressive £327 was raised and it looks like it was incredible fun!!! Well done to everyone involved and a big thank you.
Good luck girls with your exams and Thank you again to all students and staff x

Dapper Laughs is a British comedian, actor, presenter, writer and Viner.
Dapper Laughs is a ‘proper lad’ giving lad advice on romancing the ladies and being a geeza. His trade sayings are “Moist” and “Six Second Sex Secrets”.
He plays a stereotypical image that guys have, within today’s society….
This guy is getting bigger and funnier by the day, he is doing a UK tour in Feb, has been all over facebook, vine, twitter, you tube and will be hosting the Georgina’s Gang Hint of Pink Ball! Here’s your opportunity to get that selfie pic and brag to your mates about how you’ve met the ultimate ‘proper lad’. All we ask is that you make a donation to Georgina’s Gang on the day. To meet him and have a chat come to St Pierre Park on 22 March 2014 at 1300, he will be there for 1 hour.
We really hope as many of you can make it to help us raise money for our charity and to meet the funniest guy around!!
