Thatcham Rugby Club supports children's charity

THATCHAM Rugby Union Football Club has welcomed Wooden Spoon, the children’s charity of rugby, as an official charity partner.  

The club aims to support the charity, which funds local projects supporting disabled and disadvantaged children.

Club chairman, Will Sewell, said: “Thatcham Rugby Club is proud to serve our community, offering a fun place to play team sport. 

“We are delighted to adopt a well-known national charity as part of our team.

“The charity’s exciting partner club programme provides us with joint fundraising opportunities that not only benefit the club, but also change the lives of disadvantaged and disabled children locally.”

Club trustee, Sharon Briggs, said: “We have a series of activities and events planned.

“The fantastic Wooden Spoon woolly hats, perfect for this time of year, and the new cook book, jam-packed with recipes from famous rugby players, will be on sale at the club. 

“A signed rugby ball is up for grabs in our ‘Pick a square prize draw’.

“Our ‘Socks for Spoon’ weekend will be happening in the new year. 

“We can’t wait to welcome Spoony, the mascot of the charity, to the club too.”

Chairman of Wooden Spoon Chilterns region, Barrie Mair, said: “We are delighted to have the support of Thatcham Rugby Union Football Club and the rugby community for the life changing projects that we fund.   

“We are excited about this new partnership and the benefit it will bring to disadvantaged and disabled children locally.”
