“It is a privilege to have been able to help raise this significant sum of money for the organisation – of which is much deserved.”

During his year in office the grand total given to the charity reached £27,600 and they are very grateful for the support.

The Me2 Club recently held its third Charity Quiz Night where staff, trustees, families and volunteers had the chance to publicly thank John for his enthusiastic support

Tess Eagles, manager of the Me2 Club, added: “We want to thank John, for choosing a local charity in his Mayoral term.

“Every penny raised will contribute to supporting children in the Wokingham Borough to be included in their local community.

“Thanks also to John for attending our events and helping us to raise the charity’s profile during the 15th year celebrations - you have made a really big difference in the lives of the children and families Me2 Club support.”

The money raised will enable the charity to keep recruiting and developing volunteers who provide one-to-one support to young people, helping them take part in their favourite activities such as youth clubs or swimming.
