As Me 2 You can no longer accept referrals from our bereaved families in the North West, we are signposting all new referrals and existing families to Winston's Wish.
You can visit their website http://www.winstonswish.org.uk/ or phone their helpline on 08452 03 04 05.
Following our constitution, we are donating all our assets and existing monies to Winston's Wish. We hope those that have already raised money for Me 2 You or were thinking of doing so, to please consider donating and fundraising for Winston's Wish instead. They are a fantastic charity supporting bereaved children and their families throughout the UK.
I'm writing to you all with some sad news this evening.
After much discussion we have made the decision to close Me 2 You Bereavement & Loss Charity.
This has been a very difficult decision to make and not one that any of us wanted or have taken lightly. However, as many of you will be aware we have struggled to secure the funding required to enable us to continue providing the quality level of support and care that we have done over the last 3 years.
We are extremely proud of what we have achieved and the work we have done, families that we have supported and volunteers that have supported us.
Although this is sad news we will all look back over the last 3 years with very fond memories and Me 2 You will always hold a special part in all of our hearts.
We will still be holding an evening for all volunteers and families to show the DVD that the BBC is putting together for us. This evening will be a celebration, and a chance to reflect on what we have achieved and the memories that we've made. We really hope to see all of you there. The date for the evening will be March 2nd, full details will follow shortly.
We want to take this time to thank you, without any of your support and input Me 2 You would not have been as special as it has been.
