Causing a stir
Words: Pipe and Glass, Photography: Michael Coghlan
A children’s charity has paid tribute to the support that James, Kate and the team at The Pipe and Glass have shown it over the years.
Wooden Spoon is known as ‘the children's charity of rugby’ – it was founded in 1983 when a group of English rugby fans were drowning their sorrows in a Dublin bar after England's disastrous performance in the Five Nations Championship.

The victorious Irish fans presented them with a wooden spoon in sympathy, and they came up with the idea of holding a charity golf match to see who deserved the honour of keeping it.

The idea spiraled, and Wooden Spoon has since made a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people. It is one of the largest funders of respite and medical treatment centres, sensory enhancement therapeutic facilities, special.ist playgrounds, sports activity areas, and community-based programmes in the UK, and granting over £20m to these projects.

Wooden Spoon trustee Richard Smith says: “We have a fundraising dinner in York around St George's Day every year. The Pipe and Glass has generously provided an auction item for the last four years, which have raised a significant amount and con.tributed towards fundraising projects in York, Scarborough and Hull.

“I first met James on my second visit to The Pipe and Glass. I was immediately impressed by his interest in support.ing local causes; and as a keen fan, I also wanted to promote Yorkshire’s finest dining pub to the 
audience at the annual fundraising dinner! 

“The support that James and Kate have given Wooden Spoon in Yorkshire has helped us to raise thousands of pounds to benefit children with special needs.“The interest he has shown in helping young people was highlighted when he opened the new kitchen at the Apple.fields School in York; James took the time and trouble to involve as many pupils as possible in the preparation of one of his signature dishes."
