A busy start to 2019

It has been good to have everyone back in the Me2 Club office this week. Jess, Vicky and Tess have been to home visits for our new matches and to see our young people back at their activities with their volunteers. Tess has also visited the Wokingham Lions Club to update them on Me2 Club’s plans for the future. We would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to Wokingham Lions Club for their ongoing support of our charity.

This week has also been busy planning for our upcoming Teenager Day Away to Portsmouth. All those who are eligible have been sent out an invitation via email and we are looking forward to having the teenagers into the office for the planning meeting very soon. This day away is being funded by DM Thomas Foundation for Young People #IamABLE.

Unfortunately we have had to cancel our volunteer training this weekend. Our next volunteer training will be on the 10th & 11th February – venue to be confirmed. If you would like more information or to apply to volunteer with us please click here.

Tess is soon to run Inclusion Training for activity leaders. The next workshop is ‘Introduction to the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)’ on Tuesday 29th January. To find out more or book your place email Tess

Jess will be at the Wokingham Volunteer Fair on Saturday, January 19th, 10:00 – 13:00 at Wokingham Town Hall Market Place, Wokingham.

There are tickets still available for the charity night of the Russel players panto – Snow White and The Magnificent Seven on 6th February. There will be a fully licensed cash bar and raffle. Tickets are £15 to include a 2-course meal. The food kindly sponsored by Ellis Knight Bespoke Recruitment. All the money raised on the night and from the ticket sales will go to Me2 Club.

“S enjoys taking part in activities that they did not like to do before, like cooking and taking part in big group games. Instead of always sitting in the corner they are now able to join the group without me even encouraging them to do so.”
