Wooden Spoon is a grant-making charity founded in 1983 and since then we have been dedicated to making a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people.

We focus on providing funding to organisations across the UK such as specialist schools, other charities and community projects that give support, treatment or respite care to children with disabling or life-limiting medical conditions or who are living in areas of severe social deprivation.

To date, we have become one of the largest UK funders of respite and medical treatment centres, sensory rooms, specialist playgrounds, sports activity areas, and community-based programmes and have so far granted over £22 million to these fantastic projects.

Our volunteers based all over the country work tirelessly to support and fundraise for us and we ensure that every single penny they raise stays in their own community and funds projects and causes local to them.

Inspired and motivated by our rugby heritage, with the support of our wonderful volunteers and the rugby community, we have been able to help over 1 million young people and children in need.

Challenges are just one aspect of raising money for Wooden Spoon, other ways that you can get involved can be found on their website.
