A RUGBY charity has helped raise money for two projects at Worcestershire schools.

A £40,000 donation from the Worcestershire Wooden Spoon committee will help pay for a sensory room for Dines Green Academy and a running track for St Bartholomew’s Primary school, Stourport.

Both school projects will be completed this year.

The two projects were unveiled at a special event at Boleros attended by 40 of the charity's regular sponsors/contributors.

Headmasters, Andrew Morley and Ian James described the projects to the audience, highlighting the significant benefits these projects would bring to their respective schools and, the pupils.

Both thanked Wooden Spoon and the assembled sponsors for their generosity and support enabling the projects to go ahead.

 Wooden Spoon Chairman John Gibson said: “It was great to bring in the schools to discuss the projects with our very loyal and generous sponsors who without which these would simply not go ahead.

"Whilst Wooden Spoon has a national presence all funds raised within Worcestershire will be spent within Worcestershire.”

The latest donations takes the amount raised by the charity to £350,000.
