Thank you to everyone who has supported the event by buying tickets and donating prizes. To see if you are one of our lucky winners click here.

On Sunday 14th July, Me2 Club families enjoyed a day at Sporting Bears Dream Rides, in Andover. They had the amazing opportunity to ride in lots of exciting cars such as a Lamborghini, a McLaren and even an Aston Martin. We have had so much positive feedback from the families who attended and are very grateful to the volunteers from Sporting Bears who donated their time and cars! One parent said: “We all want to say a big thank you for getting Me2 club children invited to this event. We all had a wonderful time and are still buzzing from going in the cars. C fulfilled his dream of riding in a Lamborghini and mine of going in a Maserati!” You can read more about the day here.

We are so excited that two of our young people have created their own challenge to travel on loads of different London Transport in a day to raise money Me2 Club and other charities who support them. Read their story and support their fundraising efforts here.

On 18th September, we are holding a Fundraising Cheese and Wine Reception with Berkshire Community Foundation, which has been generously hosted by Ascot Racecourse, in their Parade Ring Suite. The event will give guests the opportunity to meet and network with other professionals and learn more about each of the charities. The guest speaker for the evening is Hugo Vickers DL, writer, broadcaster and Patron of Me2 Club. Tickets will be limited so please contact Liz for more information. 

On Sunday 28th July, The Pavlovs Dog in Reading will be holding the IVØRIES Summer Charity Take Over for Me2 Club! Come on down for an afternoon of live music, charity raffle, games and much more! Click here for more details about the event.

“S enjoys taking part in activities that they did not like to do before, like cooking and taking part in big group games. Instead of always sitting in the corner they are now able to join the group without me even encouraging them to do so.”
