Raising money at the Races!

The whole Me2 Club Team and 4 amazing volunteers spent Friday evening last week bucket collecting at Ascot Racecourse and are delighted to have raised £1,400.96! We would like to thank our fantastic fundraising volunteers Geoff, Sue, Chris and Andy for their enthusiasm (despite the rain!) that meant we raised such a fantastic total and also to Ascot for giving us the opportunity to collect on such a prestigious Race Weekend. The money raised will go towards helping more children with additional needs to take part in activities.

This week in the office the team have been working hard on our new CRM system ready for our second training day next week. We are making full use of the summer holidays to get everything set up ready to go live by September. We have also started contacting our current volunteers about potential matches for the next term and are looking forward to working with new children off the waiting list and our existing young people to help them attend their activities.

Invites for the Teenager Weekend Away have gone out and so please remember to let Tess know if your child is interested in coming with us. We have already started our research for the planning meeting and hope the young people are looking forward to choosing some exciting activities to take part in!

The deadline for our Activities and Volunteer Coordinator position has now passed and we are looking forward to having applicants in for an interview in the coming weeks. We hope everyone is enjoying the lovely sunny weather!

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