Thanks to the support of almost 500 members and volunteers, we have raised more than £1.5 million and supported 40 local children’s projects since 2000. Some of the most recent Devon projects have included funding specialist rugby wheelchairs, new changing rooms for a hydrotherapy pool and an updated sensory room at a children’s hospice.
We hope that our wide variety of fundraising events across the year means that there is something of interest for all the family and we look forward to welcoming everyone – whether to a golf day, sports dinner, Christmas event or even a superhero training day!
See the events tab below for upcoming fundraising activities within the region.
Wooden Spoon Devon has funded a wide range of projects from outdoor learning areas to wheelchair rugby to treatment suites.
Wooden Spoon Devon opened a classroom and therapy space at Sirona Therapeutic Horsemanship. They provide equine-based therapeutic and educational activities to young people, whether with a disability, disadvantage or dealing with social exclusion.
The portable classroom was made possible with a £12,500 donation, and provides a much needed warm and quiet space for the children and young people who use the charity’s services.
