Who are we?

The charity was formed in 2006 and is a totally self-funding charity, we rely on people and businesses to raise funds for us so that we can provide the much-needed memory holidays to our families. The way the charity came about is a story you can read on Our Founder page, told to you by the charity founder, Maria Hanson MBE.

Our mission

me&dee has a simple mission, to ensure families going through difficult and uncertain times are gifted with memories they can treasure, never losing sight of what truly matters. Because it’s those special moments shared with the ones we love, no matter how complicated circumstances may be, that are most precious of all.

Make a memory, make a difference

With your support, families and children facing life-changing and limiting circumstances can find the space to celebrate the precious time they have together.

Creating Memories

For those who are facing an uncertain future it’s important to create a way of capturing precious memories, those that we all take for granted when life is busy and passing us by.

me&dee realise that the most important thing we can gift is time together as a family, a chance to stop the worries for a day or two, something that can take people out of the situation they find themselves in and capture some smiles, some laughter and those oh so precious memories, to cherish and remember.

Whether that one person in the family is an adult or child, gifting them the time together by way of an experience or treat is what me&dee do.

Gifting families with special memories

We can’t change the difficult times. But together we can help families going through life-changing circumstances to laugh and smile when they need it most, making sure it’s the special times that will always be remembered.
