In 2017 we piloted an exciting new Days Away project which is open to young people who are currently supported by Me2 Club. The aim of the project is to increase our young peoples confidence and independence skills. We run three Days Away each year, one of which is specifically for our Me2 Club Teenagers.
Our previous Days Away
- A day at the seaside in Bournemouth funded by the Wessex Youth Trust
- Cotswold Wildlife Park, which was funded by the Berkshire Community Foundation
- Bristol Aquarium and a meal out funded by Reading Dispensary Trust and Rotary Club of Reading Maiden Erlegh
- A trip to the Autism-friendly performance of The Lion King, tickets kindly donated by Willy Wonka Travel
Me2 Club have just successful run our forth Day Away, which was a trip to Portsmouth with our Teenagers. On this Day Away the Teenagers chose to go on a boat trip around Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard and a trip to the Blue Reef Aquarium, with lunch out at Pizza Express. All our young people and volunteers really enjoyed the day and everyone reported they would like to come on another trip with Me2 Club. Most of our young people also said that they made new friends during the day. Thank you to DM Thomas Foundation for Young People for supporting this trip and making it possible for us to do so many fabulous activities on our Day Away.
