Bul­litt teams up with Me2 Club

The Wokingham Paper - - BUSINESS -

AN IN­TER­NA­TIONAL mo­bile phone and con­sumer elec­tron­ics man­u­fac­turer has pledged its sup­port to a Wood­ley chil­dren’s char­ity.

Read­ing-based Bul­litt group pre­sented rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Me2 Club, which is based in Headley Road, with a cheque for £1,000 ear­lier this month.

The do­na­tion came about as Se­nior Prod­uct Direc­tor David Corke’s daugh­ter, Scar­lett, re­ceives sup­port from the char­ity.

Me2 Club helps chil­dren and young peo­ple with ad­di­tional needs in­te­grate into main­stream ac­tiv­i­ties, through the help of spe­cially-trained vol­un­teers.

The char­ity’s Fundrais­ing and Devel­op­ment Of­fi­cer, Liz McDaniel said: “Like all small char­i­ties fundrais­ing re­mains a pri­or­ity which is why we were so ex­cited to hear that Bul­litt Group chose to help us. They learnt about our work from an em­ployee who is also one of our par­ents. We are now en­cour­ag­ing more of our par­ents to speak to their em­ploy­ers to in­crease our lev­els of cor­po­rate sup­port.”

Mr Corke said: “It was a plea­sure to be able to nom­i­nate Me2 Club for this sup­port after all the help it has given to my daugh­ter over the years. To­gether with her vol­un­teer ‘buddy’ Scar­lett can join in, and en­joy, Guides.”

Bul­litt Group’s COO, Lawrence Cor­bett added: “It was great to find out more about the Char­ity and well done to the Me2 Club team for the im­pres­sive work it car­ries out.”
