Inner Wheel, one of the largest women’s organisations in the world with more than 100,000 members in 103 countries, is celebrating 90 years of friendship, fellowship and voluntary service.
During 2014, the intention is for all clubs/districts in Great Britain and Ireland to donate to their own community some form of item with wheels.
Alnwick Inner Wheel members have donated a wheeled suitcase filled with Christmas gifts of toiletries to mothers at a Women’s Refuge centre. After the toiletries have been distributed, the empty suitcase can be used by a needy family as there are occasions when mothers and children who arrive at the refuge in an emergency situation are without personal items and have no luggage.
The link with the Women’s Refuge is one of several local charities which Alnwick Inner Wheel members support and they are grateful to members of the community who support them in their projects.
