This year we have piloted an exciting new ‘Day Away’ project. The first trip was a day out at the seaside with our Me2 Club teenagers which was generously funded by the Wessex Youth Trust. One of the aims of this trip was to help our teenagers learn valuable life skills, so everyone attending came to a planning meeting to look at different options of what they would like to do.
We all got the coach down to Bournemouth and had a picnic near the beach before heading off to the Oceanarium. As it was a lovely warm day we were able to enjoy an ice cream by the sea front before boarding the land train for a scenic ride along the beach. The day ended with dinner at Harry Ramsden’s and a sing along on the coach journey home.
Our next Day Away is a trip to Cotswold Wildlife Park on Wednesday 30th August, which Berkshire Community Foundation have kindly funded. It’s open to young people who are currently supported by Me2 Club. To find out more visit out events page.
