Over the years we have raised hundreds and thousands of pounds to help improve the lives of disadvantaged and disabled children within our community.
Major projects have included a £140,000 donation to help fund a therapy pool and sensory room at Portfield School in Christchurch, which provides specialist education, respite and residential care to young people with autism and associated difficulties, and a £94,600 grant towards inclusive playground charity Fernheath Play Association.
We are hoping to add a number of new fundraising events to our bustling calendar, including a Christmas dinner on Bournemouth Pier.
Wooden Spoon Dorset has funded a wide range of projects from soft play rooms to wheelchair lifts to outdoor areas. Click Region projects for Dorset to see the full listing
