Our commitment to improving the lives of disabled and disadvantaged children in our community has resulted in more than £175,000 being raised and an array of worthwhile projects funded.
Local schools offering care and education for special needs students are among the organisations to benefit from our fundraising activities. We donated £25,000 to Exhall Grange School to help fund a toy library and sensory, soft play and counselling rooms, and the same sum to Welcombe Hills School for a sensory garden.
Wooden Spoon Warwickshire has funded a wide range of projects from sensory rooms to counselling areas to outdoor classrooms. Click Region projects for Warwickshire to see the full listing.
Wooden Spoon Warwickshire opened a new sensory room for Round Oak School in Warwick in July 2015 by Louis Deacon the former Leicester Tigers, England and British Lions player. Wooden Spoon Warwickshire donated £15,000 to the new state of the art sensory room.
The money raised at the 2013 Wooden Spoon Golf Day was put towards the Woodland Walk Project at Woodlands School. The Woodland Walk is an area created to be used for various outdoor activities. Woodlands School is a Special School that caters for children with a wide variety of special needs.
