Wooden Spoon Society
Wooden Spoon is a children’s charity founded in 1983 that is dedicated to helping underprivileged children and young people all over the UK and Ireland to live happier, richer lives. We comprise over 40 regional volunteer committees as well as a central national team and we boast more than 10,000 members across the UK and Ireland. The regional committees undertake local fundraising activities and ensure that the money is spent on projects in their community so that the benefit of our work is always immediate, visible and lasting. During our first 25 years, over half a million young people benefitted from more than £15 million pounds of charitable support thanks to the efforts of our staff and volunteers. We are proud of our legacy, the work we do, and our ambitious plans for the future.

Gaz's End to End Challenge

Gareth Pierce

My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting my page. The Wooden Spoon Society is very close to my heart for a number of reasons and I have supported it for nearly 10 years by taking part in the Four Peaks Challenge both as a competitor and more recently as an event marshall. I have also done numerous fundraisng events for them and taken part in a £10k run. For my 10th year, I wanted to do something that would both raise money for this amazing charity and at the same time challenge me and get me fit... So I bought a road bike and decided to "give it a go"! I have been mountain biking since I was a kid but this is a totally new challenge for me and I have to say that getting myself fit and managing 120 miles a day for several days seems a long way off right now... but I am committed... the diet and fitness drive has begun and I am starting my challenge with a 10K run in November to kick start my fundraising!

So... thanks for taking time to read this, and I hope that you will sponsor me... this is a HUGE thing for me and I am doing it to support the wonderfull work that Spoon do for disabled and disadvantaged kids accross the UK... its a truley special charity.

Thanks a million
