Wooden Spoon has pledged £200,000 to help small charities during the COVID-19 crisis.

Wooden Spoon Lancashire

Over the coming weeks we will provide funds to children’s charities in communities across the UK and Ireland. The charities we have selected are struggling to run essential services. Their funding has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each of the Wooden Spoon regional volunteer groups are eligible for £5,000 in funds. The monies come from  The Telegraph Christmas Appeal 2019 and funds raised by Rugbytots.

Charities eligible for the funding will provide essential services to vulnerable children and young people in local communities across the UK & Ireland. Charities supported are not eligible for Government funding.

Wooden Spoon is adapting it’s funding approach to better respond to the challenges presented by COVID-19. It is clear that the pandemic is having a devastating impact on a huge number of vulnerable children across the UK and Ireland.

Make a donation today to help us support vulnerable children most in need.
