Get fundraising for Wooden Spoon this spooky season!

Halloween is the perfect time to get creative, have some fun and raise funds for the children’s charity of rugby at the same time… Win-win!

Looking for some eerie ideas? Here’s some of our spooktacular suggestions…

Pumpkin carving competition

Host the competition at home or a local venue, ask people to pay a donation to take part and have a prize for the best design! Showcase all the pumpkins on social media and get friends to vote for the champion.

Fang-tastic fun run

Run, walk, cycle, wheel, hop or skip a 5k on October 31st. Suit up in your best fancy dress and ask for sponsors to support your chilling challenge.

Spooky bake sale

Put your baking skills to the test this Halloween. Rustle up some tasty themed treats and sell them to your school friends or work colleagues!

Pumpkin Trail

Get together with your neighbours and organise a pumpkin hunt! Each house pays a donation to get involved. Ask participants to print, decorate and display pumpkins in their windows. Note down the locations, create a route and invite people to follow your clues to spot the pumpkins!

Horror movie marathon

Invite your friends and family round for your own horror movie marathon and donate the money you would have spent going out to the cinema.


By raising money for Wooden Spoon, you are funding life-changing projects that make a real difference to vulnerable children, young people and their families.
