We are excited to announce our 20th Anniversary! We are really proud to have been supporting children and young people with additional needs in Wokingham and more recently Reading for 20 years. Since 2003, Me2 Club volunteers have enabled children and young people with additional needs and disabilities (aged 5-19 years) to attend a weekly mainstream activity of their choice. The volunteers are often young people themselves, and are there to give the children/young people the encouragement and support they need to get involved, gain confidence, make friends and most importantly have fun!
Chin Davies, Me2 Club’s CEO said: “I am so excited to have joined Me2 Club during it’s 20th Year. The longevity and growth of the charity is a testament to the impact it has made in the local community and direct beneficiaries. We have planned some lovely celebratory events over the next year and look forward to seeing our families and supporters at these events.
Jo Ramsay, Me2 Club’s Senior Fundraising and Development Co-ordinator ‘we have so many exciting plans this year and hope many of you in the community will join us in our fundraising & celebrations’.
In celebration we are launching our 20th Anniversary appeal. We would love to hear from families who have been directly supported by us over the past 20 years or any past volunteers, trustees or staff would like to get involved in our celebrations.
As well as working with wonderful grant funders, both national and local, over the next year we are looking to diversify our funding streams and we would love to hear from you if you could support us by:
- Taking on a sponsored challenge. Current ideas involve running, swimming and sky diving but we are always happy to hear other suggestions.
- Run a fundraising event for us – please let us know your ideas and we can provide banners, buckets and other support.
- Choosing Me2 Club as your Charity of the Year
- School dress down day

We would also love to hear from you if there is a child or young person in your family who would benefit from our unique help.
