Run Vicky Run!

This week the team has been busy with activity visits, meetings, and planning for our upcoming events. Vicky has signed up to run the Woodley 10k in April for Me2 Club! If you would like to donate please go to her Just Giving page. We are very grateful to have received an amazing grant from The Shanly Foundation this week! This donation will go towards our volunteer recruitment and training costs. Without our amazing volunteers we wouldn’t be able to support our children so a big ‘thank you’ to the trustees of The Shanly Foundation. There are still spaces available for our next Volunteer Induction Training on 11th and 12th February, 5-9pm in Wokingham. Click here to find out more and download an application form.

Tess and Liz had a meeting with Wokingham Borough Mayor, Cllr John Kaiser, making arrangements for the upcoming Wokingham Mayor’s Gala Ball. We are pleased to announce that Takeagamble Fun Casino will be at the ball along with Flashback Band! Tickets are still available so email Liz for more details or click here.

Jess has been out at lots of activity visit this week and in addition to celebrating her birthday she has been able to take some children off our waiting list. We look forward to meeting the new families and working with them to help their children at mainstream activities. Vicky had a successful recruitment talk with the Year 12s at The Emmbrook School this week, discussing the different ways they can get involved in volunteering with us. The team has also been preparing for the upcoming Teenager Day Away. The Teenagers have all responded with their activity choices and so we can now start booking the activities and finalise our plans for the day.

We are so excited to announce that we are one of the charities supported at The Wokingham Walk this year! Registration opens on 15th February so if you would like to walk, and raise funds for Me2 Club, please contact Liz

Finally, next week is the Charity night of The Russell Player’s Snow White and the Magnificent Seven, which has already sold out! We are looking forward to a wonderful evening full of fun and laughter. If you didn’t manage to get a ticket to the charity night there are still some available for other nights, please go to the Russell Players website for more details.

“Me2 Club provides a fantastic service, essential to our children growing up and giving them the opportunity to access mainstream activities in their community, which makes them “part” of their community.”
