    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Me2 is an inclusive youth dance company for young people with and without disabilities aged 11-24 in Leeds. Run by MeshDance in partnership with Leeds Mencap, Me2 celebrate and champion the beauty of diversity in dance, challenging perceptions of disability.

    On Saturday 1st April, Me2 performed at the West Yorkshire Playhouse as part of Fresh 2017. This is a regional dance platform, showcasing the best youth dance from across Yorkshire.

    The panel at Fresh chose two groups to represent the region at U.Dance, the national youth dance platform, where groups from across the UK come together over three days to perform, take part in workshops and share their skills and successes with each other.

    Me2 were one of the groups selected to represent Yorkshire at U.Dance 2017 (and the first inclusive group to ever represent Yorkshire) and we are really excited to head down to Birmingham in July for a wonderful weekend of dancing! We are fundraising to cover some of the costs of attending U.Dance and any support that you can give us is very much appreciated. Your contributions will help us to pay for costs such as staffing, accommodation and transport to and from the U.Dance in an accessible vehicle.

    Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to offer us!

      Wow! I am absolutely overwhelmed at people's generosity. Your support is so much appreciated and is really helping to make this fantastic experience happen! I've tried to contact everyone who's donated to say thank you, but interestingly I don't know some of you! So for the people I'm not in direct contact with...THANK YOU! Many many thanks to each and everyone of you.
