An epic 34 miles for Wooden Spoon

A GREAT result for Wooden Spoon Dorset & Wiltshire, attending a superb community day on Saturday 22nd June at Pewsey Vale RFC in the Angela Yates Memorial Ground and collecting a cheque for nearly £900 for disabled and disadvantaged children across Dorset and Wiltshire.

Pewsey Vale RFC’s senior squad had recently completed an epic 34 mile hike from “The Rec” home of Bath Rugby to their own soon-to-be-opened clubhouse in Pewsey.

Justin Cliff Chairman of Wooden Spoon Dorset & Wiltshire commented, ‘ I was thrilled to be invited to Pewsey Vale RFC and see their soon to
be opened clubhouse which I am sure will be of benefit not only to the club but also to the wider community. The club are keen to be part of the community and it was wonderful to see members of the club contributing positively to the lives of those less fortunate than themselves by making this fantastic donation. We are keen to stress that every penny raised in the county is spent on projects in the county and we look forward to working alongside the club in raising further monies to benefit projects across North Wiltshire .’

The event brought to the club many potential new members for their thriving mini and youth section and a broad section of attendees from across the village, along with representatives from the club and organisations such as Swindon Speedway and national rugby charity Wooden Spoon,
