A teenager who dressed up as Disney princesses during the first lockdown to spread some positivity and joy during the Covid-19 Pandemic crisis has raised £3,000 for Newcastle Hospitals Charity.
Kind-hearted Georgia Grace Price has filmed more than 700 personalised messages to children all around the world from her bedroom in Sunderland.
And not only is the dedicated 18-year-old putting a smile back on the faces of hundreds of people from America to Australia she’s also raising vital funds for Newcastle Hospital Charity to support staff and patients impacted by Covid-19.
In one week, her Facebook page notched up more than 1,000 followers and she’s raised close to £3,000.
“I just thought to remind people that it’s really important to be kind and to support each other more now than ever,” said Georgia.
“Princesses are very important to me. Over the past few years, I struggled with my mental health and was in a very dark place. The princesses for me, even though I am 18, really helped me through this time.
“It helped bring a bit of positivity and joy into my life and I want to do that for others now.”
Dressed up as one of four Disney princesses and with an animated voice to match, the 18-year-old has been inundated with requests.
Georgia chose to raise funds as a thank you for the ‘amazing’ treatment she received at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary when she was growing up.
“I was treated for Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis when I was about 10-years-old,” said Georgia.
“I just wanted to give something back for what they did to help me.”
Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis causes pain and inflammation of a child’s joints and can also affect the immune system.
“I just want to try my best for everyone and give back to the RVI and cheer up everyone!” added Georgia.
