Our Chosen Charity -Wooden Spoon


The Wooden Spoon charity do an amazing job for disabled and disadvantaged children. I think the projects and facilities they fund are second to non and to be able to help with that is an honour. Big thanks to Chester-le-street RFC who have been very supportive. We have held two raffles on separate occasions with prizes donated by the club and the club have also put me in contact with people at the charity which has proved very useful.
