Partner Clubs’ summer support

WOODEN Spoon Partner Clubs have generously swung into action this summer to raise vital funds for the children’s charity of rugby.

Andy Gomarsall MBE made a guest appearance as Crowborough RFC in Sussex collected more than £3,000 after organising a post-bike ride Wooden Spoon lunch.

London’s Old Colfeians RFC raised nearly £1,000 with a city lunch at The East India Club, while England’s capital city was also the venue for the Royal Arsenal Tag Rugby Club‘s Tag Rugby Blitz competition. The event was held on Blackheath Common, which was the site of England’s very first match against Wales.

In the west country, Gloucestershire’s Longlevens RFC held a rugby and cider festival headlined by John Coghlan’s Status Quo. The club has raised £205 to date, which is almost enough to fund a full support swing set for a school playground to allow wheelchair-bound children to independently have fun and play.

And Reading Abbey RFC hosted the latest running of the famous Fat Bloke 7s in support of Wooden Spoon, with fundraising from the day on track to raise £1,000.

Thank you and congratulations to all of our Partner Clubs!
