History

/media/whoweare/library/mariambe3.jpg My name is Maria Hanson MBE and I created me&dee as a registered charity in 2006

As a disabled woman, I know only too well how treats can become the bottom of a priority list. My very close cousin Delia and I often spoke about this, and how we would like to set up our own charity providing low cost holidays for when time is short and precious, for when living in continual stress and pain makes life so very hard to contend with. We were consciuos of the effect that a simple British seaside holiday with a luxury caravan and a private sea front beach hut could have in creating those very precious and magical memories together.

Sadly, Delia lost her battle with cancer in 2005 before we could achieve our dreams together. I carry her and our dream in my heart, and eleven years on, me&dee is creating over 100 special moments a year, and in addition is supporting oncology wards in hospitals and in hospices with nominations.
