Charity Partner – National Rugby Awards

WOODEN Spoon is delighted to be announced as the official charity partner for the 2019 Minis, Juniors and Youth National Rugby Awards, which take place at Twickenham Stadium on Thursday 29th August 2019.

The National Rugby Awards were created to honour the achievements of every rugby club across England and all those involved, from players, coaches, volunteers and many more. This is the only event which brings together players and clubs of all leagues to celebrate their contribution to the great game of Rugby. The event has been setup by Zeus Events with England player Chris Robshaw as the event ambassador,

By joining forces with the National Rugby Awards, Wooden Spoon aim to help drive awareness of our work, which positively transforms the lives of disabled or disadvantaged young people across the country.

Adam Clayton, Zeus Events co-founder, said: ‘We’re delighted to announce Wooden Spoon as our official charity partner for the Minis, Juniors and Under 18s National Rugby Awards. The National Rugby Awards and Wooden Spoon share the same core values of passion, integrity, teamwork and fun and it’s a real privilege to help raise awareness and funding for such a worthy cause. We’re honoured to be working with such a renowned charity who are helping change young peoples’ lives through the power of rugby.’

Sarah Webb, Wooden Spoon CEO, said: ‘Wooden Spoon understands the positive power of rugby and that’s why we’re excited to be announcing our partnership with the Minis, Juniors and Under 18s National Rugby Awards. The awards recognise everything that’s great about the beautiful game and will help us drive awareness of the important work Wooden Spoon is doing through rugby. It’s important our partners share our values and with the National Rugby Awards, we have found a partner whose core values mirror our own.’

Nominations are still open for the chance to win an award in the Minis, Juniors and Youth categories. It’s free to enter and all entries will be judged by an independent panel of rugby professionals before winners are announced at Twickenham on Thursday 29 August.
