Schools 18/19: win a traversing wall

WOODEN Spoon is calling on parents, teachers and students to get involved with the Wooden Spoon Schools campaign, supported by Gullivers Sports Travel. Today we launch our Schools campaign for the 2018-19 season and we are looking to go bigger and better than ever before.

Join Wooden Spoon and schools and colleges across the country in our campaign to get 7,500 pupils involved in fun activities that raise £25,000 for charity projects in your local area that can change children’s lives for the better.

How can you get involved?

  • Wear our distinctive Wooden Spoon O’Neills socks for a home block fixture (£5 from every pair sold is donated to Wooden Spoon)
  • Order Wooden Spoon OPRO mouthguards (£10 from every mouthguard sold will be donated to Wooden Spoon)
  • Climb Your Own Everest – join our teams going to Mount Everest to play the highest game of rugby in history by completing the 8,848 metres or 58,070 steps to the summit of Everest in the comfort of your own school whilst raising funds for Wooden Spoon

Win a 9 metre traversing wall.

Schools who take part in the Climb Your Own Everest campaign and raise funds for Wooden Spoon will be in with the chance to win a 9 metre traversing wall, kindly donated by Climbing Wall Solutions.

It does not need to be restricted to rugby; football and hockey teams can get involved too, and for those who are not so sporty we have the Wooden Spoon day sock so nobody has to miss out. Wooden Spoon’s core values of passion, integrity, teamwork and fun are at the heart of everything we do. We aim to provide pupils with a fun experience in working together for the benefit of those less fortunate than themselves that is simple and easily rolled out in school.

Last year, Terrington Hall School took up the challenge and Alex Crockett, Head of Sport at Terrington Hall School, said;

The personal development of pupils at Terrington Hall School is really important to us and we strive to develop well-rounded, responsible young people with a strong sense of community spirit. We are proud that parents and pupils have embraced the opportunity to raise money for young people leading less fortunate lives.

It’s easy to take part; all schools have to do is email us and show your interest and Wooden Spoon will help with the rest.
