Include Me 2 Club is an award-winning volunteer led charity working with children, young people and adults with an additional support need.

Paul Mcilvenny, co-founder of Include Me 2 Club, said: “We are extremely grateful for the support that we have received from Taylor Wimpey, and we can’t thank them enough for their generous donation which will go towards creating a fantastic family event.

“We are part of the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, which is the highest award given to volunteer groups across the UK, and as a registered charity we do a lot of volunteering work with our members so it was incredibly important to us to mark the Platinum Jubilee by creating an event that was free for everyone to enjoy.

"We really do hope to see as many members of the local community as possible – come rain or shine, we will have a great time, plus we can’t wait to show off our new base in Cowan Park which will operate in addition to our community hub in the James McGuire building.”
