Silent auction sees Hartpury students give time to help local children

Hartpury students have teamed up with neighbours Gloucester Rugby to help rugby charity Wooden Spoon continue to improve the lives of disabled and underprivileged children in the Gloucestershire area.

Four BTEC rugby students volunteered to help out with a silent auction held at the home of Gloucester Rugby, Kingsholm, before a further 12 students set about manning a bucket collection at a Gloucester home game in the New Year.

Matthew Callow, Tristan Griffiths, Taya Chase and Beth Hicks volunteered to help with the auction as 27 tables full of bidders had the chance to win themselves a variety of items ranging from vouchers to framed rugby shirts.

After the event, Tim Heal from Wooden Spoon, said: “The students were excellent. I couldn’t speak highly enough of them and received several positive comments about their helpfulness, politeness and positivity. Thank you to Hartpury for allowing them to help us out. We are always grateful for volunteers.

Wooden Spoon is the UK’s leading grant-making charity dedicated to helping disadvantaged and disabled children and young people through rugby. Since the company was founded in 1983, they have been able to help more than a million children and young people through their life-changing projects.

The Gloucester specific branch of Wooden Spoon run by Chairman Tim Heal, has raised more than £400,000 for disadvantaged and disabled children in the local community.

The bucket collection after Christmas will take place on the 30th January when Gloucester take on Leicester Tigers, with 12 Hartpury students set to lend a hand on the day.
