Networking in Ascot

Ascot Racecourse hosts partnership event with Berkshire Community Foundation to highlight work of the Me2 Club.

On 18th September 2019, Ascot played host to the Berkshire Community Foundation (BCF) and ME2 Club’s inaugural cheese and wine evening, co-sponsored by Beaufort Financial and KJ Smith Solicitors.  The event celebrated the Ascot Racecourse Fund, managed by BCF, which supports local causes that strengthen communities, tackle disadvantage and transform lives including the Me2 Club.

Guests were treated to wine tastings from Ascot’s official wine merchants, Hallgarten & Novum Wines, alongside selected cheeses prepared by Ascot’s catering team. Hugo Vickers DL, Patron of the Me2 Club also regaled the group with his interesting stories.

Tess Eagles, CE of Me2 Club, updated distinguished guests on the work of the charity and Tom and Vincent, members of the club, delighted everyone with their personal accounts of their adventures that were facilitated by the club which sees those with additional needs and disabilities to enjoy mainstream activities with the help of trained buddies.

 “The evening provided an opportunity to network and enjoy a fantastic selection of cheese and wine, but most importantly a chance for Me2 Club and BCF to showcase the vital work they are doing in our community. Thank you to all involved for putting on a very memorable evening.” Elliot Clark, KJ Smith Solicitors Commercial Manager
