Wooden Spoon Sussex has funded a wide range of projects from sensory rooms to outdoor learning areas to hydrotherapy pools.

At a specially arranged ceremony at Sussex Yacht Club on Saturday July 18th 2015 Wooden Spoon Sussex presented a new sailing dinghy worth £12,000 to Sussex Sailability. The dinghy which is specially modified for disabled sailors was formally launched by local rugby star, Arctic Rugby Team Captain and Wooden Spoon Ambassador Ollie Phillips.

Andy Gomarsall MBE opened the new Sensory Garden at Woodlands Meed School in Burgess Hill, West Sussex. The school benefitted from a donation of £8,500 from Wooden Spoon Sussex to be spent on their new sensory garden. Woodlands Meed School is a special school for pupils aged 3-19 years, that caters for children who suffer from severe, multiple and profound learning difficulties.
