Wooden Spoon Wiltshire raises funds that help life-changing projects in the local area. One example of a project they pledged to support is Rowdeford School near Devizes, providing specialist care for children with special needs.

The school were in need of an Outdoor Learning Facility to enhance the children’s learning and well being, so by committing to holding a number of fantastic events including Golf days, dinners and the Floodlit Rugby Festivals for Under 12’s, our Wiltshire committee raised an amazing £35,000!

Wooden Spoon Wiltshire has funded a range of projects from outdoor learning centres to sensory gardens and disabled facilities. Click Region projects for Wiltshire to see the full listing.

In May 2015 Wooden Spoon Wiltshire opened a new softplay area and equipment for Eldene Little Owl Nursery in Swindon. Wooden Spoon Wiltshire Chairman, Gareth John, said: “It is so inspiring to help those with special needs through the power of rugby. Providing them with such important and life changing facilities is truly magical”.

Wiltshire Wooden Spoon funded over £8,000 for 10 new sports wheelchairs to the Swindon St George Disabled Rugby team to support their determination to become a leading team in disability sport.
