A visit from the High Sheriff of Berkshire

This week at Me2 Club we had a visit from Lucy Zeal, the High Sheriff of Berkshire. During the meeting Lucy got to hear all about the wonderful work we do to support our children and their volunteers. After the visit she said “It was a pleasure to meet you all on Tuesday and to hear of the amazing work that you do.” Lucy will be joining our Fundraising Wine and Cheese Reception on Wednesday 18th September at Ascot Racecourse.

Liz and Tess had a planning meeting at Ascot Racecourse this week with Berkshire Community Foundation ahead of the event. As well as offering fantastic networking opportunities, Ascot’s resident Wine Merchant will be talking guests through a selection of wines from across the world with a number of cheeses to compliment the fine wine tasting. The evening will round off with a talk from Hugo Vickers DL – Author, Journalist and frequent broadcaster at high profile Royal occasions. To book your tickets please click here.

We are excited to announce that we have been nominated for a Pride of Reading award! A big thank you to one of our wonderful volunteers, Susan, for nominating us for the Charity of the year.

Tomorrow, weather permitting, Lou is facing her fears and completing a sky dive to help raise money for Me2 Club! So far, Lou has reached her original target but can you help her reach £500? This amount will sponsor one child to attend their weekly activity with a Me2 Club volunteer for a whole year! To support Lou, visit her just giving page.

“My experience of volunteering with S is very rewarding and I enjoy my time when I am at Guides with her. Me2 Club has given us opportunities to do different things and have different experiences”.
