Co-op Stores Step Up for Wooden Spoon

  • Published in News

Wooden Spoon is the rugby charity for disadvantaged and disabled children. The Cornwall region has worked tirelessly to raise more than £120,000 for projects supporting disadvantaged and disabled children in the local community. All the money raised in Cornwall remains in Cornwall to benefit these children.

Co-op stores in the county have recently collected over £4K in counter top boxes, a wonderful effort, but it doesn’t stop there! Rebecca Watson (pictured) of the St Just Co-op is leading a sponsored charity event with the aim of raising another £2K to the total.

Rebecca explains, “We are from the Co-op in St Just and we are completing a sponsored charity event in aid of Cornwall Wooden Spoon.

Cornwall Wooden Spoon positively transforms lives of children and young people with a disability or facing disadvantage through the power of rugby.

We intend to visit all 32 Cornwall RFU affiliated clubs within a 24-hour timescale, commencing on Saturday 6th October from St Just Rugby Club, taking photographic evidence at each club.”

You can help Rebecca hit the target by donating here:

Remember where the money will go and please support the challenge.

A good weekend for Cornish clubs. Cornish Pirates top the Greene King IPA Championship as they record their second bonus point win at the Mennaye on Sunday afternoon. Redruth hold on to win in a thrilling encounter with Taunton Titans to also make it two from two.

Camborne come back to beat Maidenhead. Launceston record their second win to stay joint top in South West One as they also make a perfect start to the season but St Ives find Devonport Services too tough to crack in Devon whilst St Austell and Falmouth show their credentials in Level Seven.

Bude make it two in a row in the Cornwall & Devon league whilst Liskeard-Looe romp home to remain unbeaten in the first two weeks.

Cornwall One and Two clubs played the second round in the Round Robin preliminaries in the RFU Junior Vase.
