Our dedicated volunteers in the region have committed more than £500,000 to in excess of 25 projects supporting disabled and disadvantaged children.

Our ability to award grants to deserving community initiatives is propped up by a popular fundraising calendar that features an annual black-tie sportsman’s dinner for 200-plus guests, a well-attended golf day and biennial Treorchy Male Choir concerts.

Popular TV and radio sports presenter and Honorary President of Wooden Spoon Surrey, John Inverdale, opened a new Early years Play area at Higsaw CABAS® School.

Wooden Spoon Surrey donated £10,710 towards the project, helping the specialist day school committed to educating children with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

In 2014 John Inverdale, the renowned sports commentator, opened two fantastic new sun canopies for use at Woodlands School.

The Canopies were funded by Wooden Spoon Surrey, who donated £10,000. The canopies allow vulnerable pupils, who would have previously had to stay indoors to access the outside space even on very hot days.
