It’s begining to look a lot like Christmas!

This week at the Me2 Club office we have been planning and getting everything ready for our upcoming Day Away. Vicky and Jess have been attending home visits to meet new families who have come off our waiting list as well as activity visits to see the Me2 Club young people and their volunteers.

On Sunday 9th of December, everyone at Me2 Club was excited to host our annual Christmas Party for the Me2 Club families and supporters. There was lots to do including Christmas tree themed crafts, face painting, entertainment from Juggle puppets, as well as visits to Santa’s grotto. One parent told us “It was the first time my son had been in Santa’s Grotto because there was no queuing.”  It was great to see so many of our young people enjoying the crafts and entertainment followed by a buffet lunch and a chance for them to play with their presents before it was time to head home. The party was a great success and we would like to say a big thank to our Trustees, volunteers and supporters for their help to run the event and we would like to say a special thank you to The Fence Club, Bracknell Forest Lions and ASDA Lower Earley for the help and donations towards the event!

 Last Friday we had a very successful day at Asda Lower Earley rasing awarenss of the charity and bucket collecting. The total raised on the day including the Easthampstead Rotary raffle ticket sales was £755.90! A big thank you to everyone who donated and supported us on the day.

There is still time to get your tickets for the Mayor’s Gala Ball. 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.
