OCTOBER 2023 NEWS. Theme “Shine a light”
The Inner Wheel Club is in it’s 89th year and it still shines through. Thank you to the ladies of York IW Club for filling 30 shoe boxes for international causes / distribution. (Going to Eastern Europe including Ukraine.)
We collected over 100 pairs of knickers, numerous knitted goods from blankets, jumpers, hats and of course the sweet hand knitted teddies.
We are sure each and every item will be appreciated by whoever receives them.
Our ISO works so hard collecting all the items and delivering them to a central collecting point at St Chads in Leeds …. Thank you, Paddy.

On Sunday 20th August, Four Inner Wheel members, helped support Rotary Tree Partnership on the 4th Anniversary of the tree planting project at the Haxby Road site.
Over 22 families and friends came to tend/ find their trees planted 2018/19. Enjoying a picnic in the wooded area on the banks of the River Foss, on a glorious hot sunny afternoon (despite it being the World Cup Women’s football final)
This is another example of Rotary / Inner Wheel working together in the community, to make a difference to the local environment.,
