Exciting times ahead!

This week, Jess and Vicky have been busy with recruitment talks at Reading Boys School and Waingels College. We have had 57  students sign up at these talks for more information and our November Volunteer Induction Training is almost fully booked already! Thank you to the schools we have already visited this term plus we have 4 more talks booked in over the coming weeks.

We are very excited to have received a grant from DM Thomas Foundation for Young People‘s #IamABLE Giveaway. Thank you so much for your support!

The Wokingham Borough Mayor is hosting a Gala Ball in aid of Me2 Club. It will be held on 9th March 2019 at Sindlesham Court. The event will include a drinks reception, a 3-course meal with Silver Service, dancing and entertainment. For more information and tickets please contact Liz.

This week has seen the exciting launch of our new local ‘Corporate Friends’ group. Look out for news of the fantastic events they are planning.

A very big ‘thank you’ Freixenet for their donation to our bottle tombola at the Wokingham Winter Carnival.  We are still looking for more donations (of alcohol or toiletries) so if you can help, please contact Liz.

The Lower Earley Scarecrow Trail starts tomorrow Saturday 20th October, maps of the route are available from Rustic Café, Ashby Carpets, and Asda. There are over 60 scarecrows along the trail and we cannot wait to see some of the creations! Make sure you go along and see how many you can find, we would love to see some of your photos! The trail is running until Wednesday 24th October so make sure you catch them before they are gone.scarecrow-flyer

Don’t forget to save the date for the Me2 Club Christmas Party on 9th December at Robert Piggott junior school.

We hope everyone has a good half term and we look forward to seeing lots of our young people and volunteers after the break.

“The volunteers who give up their valuable time to accompany our children to the activities are priceless, thank you all.”
