A WOODLEY-based charity has received a total donation of 27,600 during the Mayor's year in office.

Councillor John Kaiser, outgoing Wokingham Mayor, chose Me2 Club as his charity of the year.

The club enables children and young people with additional needs and disabilities, aged between five and 19, to attend mainstream activity clubs.

The Me2 Club recently held its third Charity Quiz Night, which saw staff, trustees, families and volunteers have the chance to publicly thank the Mayor for his enthusiastic support.

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

Cllr John Kaiser, outgoing Mayor, said: "It has been an honour to work alongside the Me2 Club during my year in tenure.

"The services they provide for local young people are truly life-changing.

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

Tess Eagles, manager of the Me2 Club, said: "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."

More than 100 guests joined the annual charity quiz night, which was kindly sponsored by Hick’s Developments Ltd.

An impressive £2,011 was raised across the evening.
