Sem­i­nar helps Me2 Club’s work

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

A WOOD­LEY chil­dren’s char­ity has ben­e­fited from a con­nec­tion made through a sem­i­nar.

Me2 Club, which is based in Headley Road wel­comed Alex Barfield from The David Brown­low Char­i­ta­ble Foun­da­tion to its head­quar­ters on Mon­day, where they took re­ceipt of a do­na­tion of £8,400 from the foun­da­tion.

The two or­gan­i­sa­tions met through the Berk­shire Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion Char­ity Sem­i­nar, which is chaired by Lady Cather­ine Steven­son, who was also present for the cheque pre­sen­ta­tion.

The money will pay the char­ity’s rent for an en­tire year.

Mr Barfield said: “What Me2 Club does is com­pletely in-line with the Foun­da­tion’s ethos: to en­hance the lives and well­be­ing of in­di­vid­u­als and com­mu­ni­ties where there is an el­e­ment of dis­ad­van­tage. They pro­vide op­por­tu­ni­ties for chil­dren and young peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties which most of us take for granted, such as go­ing to Brown­ies or Cubs.

“This money will help the char­ity con­tinue to op­er­ate, be­cause without this hub, there would be no Me2 Club.”

Me2 Club Man­ager Tess Ea­gles said: “We are ex­tremely grate­ful to The David Brown­low Char­i­ta­ble Foun­da­tion for this do­na­tion. Ev­ery penny makes a huge dif­fer­ence to the char­ity.”
