The Festival of Business is organised by members of the Woodley Business Club, a non-profit making organisation. It is designed to bring businesses of Woodley together and to celebrate the strong business community, with money raised donated to a local charity.
Therefore we are really excited to announce that the chosen charity for 2016 is Me2 Club, a registered charity that enables children and young people with additional needs who live in Wokingham Borough to access mainstream leisure activities. These activities include Scouts, Youth Clubs, and Sports etc. This is achieved through providing trained volunteers that offer 1-1 support, and training activity leaders in disability and inclusion.
In selecting Me2 Club Jacqueline Harris, Chairperson Festival of Business Woodley commented “Me2 Club is a fabulous organisation that is based in Woodley and does some great work in making a difference to, not just the children and young people themselves, but to their families too. I am delighted to be supporting them with proceeds from the Festival this year.”
In response Tess Eagles, Me2 Club Manager said: “We are delighted to be selected as Woodley Business Club’s charity of 2016. This is an excellent opportunity for us to raise our profile in the Woodley area and be part of a successful business event.”
The Me2 Club were winners of the Queen’s Award in 2011 and are an approved Provider for Mentoring and Befriending Foundation
