Wooden Spoon Bristol, Bath & Somerset Chairman
Wooden Spoon Bristol, Bath & Somerset has collectively raised more than £870,000. We have funded projects for children with disabilities or facing disadvantage, and their families.
Our annual Spring Lunch and Summer Golf Day continue to prove crowd pleasers. Please visit our events section below to what’s coming up.
Among our many “career highlights” to date was being able to provide a £120,000 grant towards the construction of a state-of-the-art building for North Bristol NHS Trust’s Paediatric Communications Aid Service.
Prior to incorporating the Somerset region in 2020, Wooden Spoon Bristol & Bath has contributed almost £400,000 to projects in the local area. The most recent project was a garden build for a cafe at Three Ways School, which was made possible with a £30,000 donation.
