Volunteer

If you want to have a positive impact on your community, volunteering with us is a great way of supporting projects and causes local to you.

Create a stir

We need your help to share stories of the sterling support we provide projects which improve the lives of disabled and disadvantaged children. Doing so is as easy as suggesting us a charity of choice at work, sharing some copies of Spoonews magazine with colleagues and teammates or following us on Facebook and Twitter.

Get involved with fundraising 

Whether it is £1 or £1,000, every penny you raise for us will be spent on projects within your community. For some inspiration, download our fundraising pack and don’t forget to let us know what you decide to do so that we can cheer you on and offer any support you may need.

Help support our events

You don’t have to commit to a feat of endurance to help us fulfil our mission to positively transform the lives of disabled and disadvantaged children and young people across the UK and Ireland. Handing out literature, cheering on our challengers and promoting local events all help us to make a difference.

Local volunteer groups

Our regional volunteer groups focus on raising funds for projects in their local communities and are key to the success of our team. If you would like to do the same or are looking to build a network of volunteers in your local area, please email volunteer@woodenspoon.org.uk.

“I got involved out of interest, one of our junior members suffered a serious rugby injury and received support from the charity.

So I went along to a meeting at a potential project, got involved and the rest is history!

Some 16 years later I still feel humbled that we can have such an impact on the lives of others less fortunate through our fundraising.

The recipients of our efforts are really appreciative and I feel extremely proud to be able to show people just what can be achieved by a group of volunteers with a love of rugby.”
