Wooden Spoon

Wooden Spoon is the children's charity of rugby, committed to helping improve the lives of disabled and disadvantaged children...

Wooden Spoon, the children's charity of rugby, successfully tackled an epic challenge with a group of intrepid adventurers - The Arctic Rugby Challenge.

Former Rugby Union Internationals Ollie Phillips and Tim Stimpson led two teams who trekked over 60 miles across arctic ice to the 1996 Magnetic North Pole, surviving harrowing winds, avoiding polar bears and facing temperatures of -30 degrees.

Once at the Magnetic North Pole, our brave challengers created a pitch and played a full 7-a-side rugby match - expecting to set a new Guinness World Record for the northernmost rugby match in history. This once in a lifetime experience is raising vital funds for Wooden Spoon, funding life-changing projects across the UK and Ireland to support disadvantaged and disabled children.
