On Monday, 11th November, BBC Children in Need’s Pudsey Bear made a surprise visit to a group of children supported by Me2 Club.

As a charity kindly supported by BBC Children in Need the very exciting visit from Pudsey was part of this year’s celebrations. The event was also attended by Michelle Jordan from BBC Radio Berkshire, who wanted to meet some of the children we support and hear what a huge difference the grant from BBC Children in Need has made. The interviews were played during ‘Michelle on the Move’ on 12th November.

During the party, Pudsey was happy to pose for lots of photos and it was difficult to tell who was most excited the children, their parents or the Me2 Club Team.

Alison and her team at The Oakwood Centre were delighted to help organise the party and provide the venue.


Thanks were give to the Oakwood Centre by Me@ Club as well as to Natalie from ASDA in Lower Earley for all the delicious party food.

Don’t disappear campaign


coercive control


The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) has launched a video  ‘Don’t Disappear’ to raise awareness of relationship abuse.   This is following its ‘Know this isn’t Love’ coercive control campaign from earlier in the year.  It has been launched under the branding of Victims First.  Victims First supports victims and witnesses of crime across the Thames Valley and is managed by the OPCC.


The film – ‘Don’t Disappear’  – tells the story of Jamie and Emma; from the seemingly loving early stages of their relationship, to the development of coercive and controlling behaviours such as jealousy and possessiveness, control, love bombing and isolation.


While anyone of any age can be a victim of coercive control, the OPCC is particularly keen to promote this to younger people who may have less relationship experience and people who are at the beginning of a relationship.  The aim of the video is to raise awareness of  the red flags – the early signs of coercive control which at the time, may be missed or misinterpreted as acceptable behaviour in a relationship.


The OPCC hopes the video will help people who may be in controlling relationships to identify with it and potentially seek help.


Anyone who is concerned they may be experiencing this can contact Victims First for support on 0300 1234 148  You can find further information about coercive control at
