Wooden Spoon Charity

 Wooden Spoon funds life-changing projects across the UK and Ireland to  support children and young people with disabilities or facing disadvantage. Since our founding in 1983, we have distributed in excess of £24 million to more than 650 projects, helping over 1 million disabled and disadvantaged children. Our rugby heritage gives us our core values of passion, integrity, teamwork and fun, and working closely with the wider rugby community, our values drive the ethos and spirit in everything we do.

We have over 400 committed volunteers who are raising funds in local communities up and down the country.  We are extremely proud to say that the money they raise locally funds projects in their local areas. We fund a range of projects, which are not just rugby focused, supporting approximately 70 projects a year including respite and medical treatment centres, sensory rooms, specialist playgrounds and community-based programmes. Rugby has always defined Wooden Spoon. Our roots lie in rugby and our future is shaped by it. The sport provides us with a purpose in making a positive difference changing children’s lives through the power of rugby.
