Maria Hanson MBE - Me & Dee Charity

Maria Hanson MBE created me&dee as a registered charity in 2006.

As a disabled woman, she knows only too well how treats can become the bottom of a priority list. She often spoke to her very close cousin Delia about this, and how they would like to set up their 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. They were conscious 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 they could achieve their dreams together. Maria carries her and Delia's dream in her heart, and me&dee is creating over 100 special moments a year, and in addition is supporting oncology wards in hospitals and in hospices with nominations.
