Cundall Manor School and Terrington Hall School teamed up in aid of a charity that helps disadvantaged children through sport.
Whilst such fixtures are always played with a healthy dash of competitive spirit, this event saw both schools united in their efforts to raise vital funds to support children and young people with disabilities or facing disadvantage in local communities via the Wooden Spoon
The U13 and U11 rugby and U13 and U12 hockey matches were played at Terrington Hall School whilst Cundall Manor hosted the U10 and U9 rugby teams as well as the U11A, U11B, U9 and U8 hockey matches.
Terrington Hall pupils from the school rugby and hockey teams dressed in the Wooden Spoon playing socks and Cundall Manor’s teams put their best foot forward in a colourful assortment of socks in support of the children’s charity of rugby.
Wooden Spoon Head of Business Development, Ian Lindsay added: “We fund life-changing projects across the UK and Ireland to support children and young people with disabilities or facing disadvantage. Our projects include respite and medical treatment centres, sensory rooms, specialist playgrounds and community-based programmes. Since our founding in 1983, we’ve distributed in excess of £24 million to more than 650 projects, helping over 1 million young people.
“We are so grateful to everyone at Terrington Hall and Cundall Manor School for supporting Wooden Spoon. Who would have thought that the simple act of buying and wearing charity socks could capture people’s attention and raise a fantastic amount to help those locally who need our support? We very much hope that other schools will follow their example and get involved!”
