Inner Wheel Club of Redditch

The ladies have been busy entertaining members from other clubs in the area and also raising funds for charities supported by Inner Wheel in Great Britain and Ireland.

A stall at the recent Astwood Bank Vintage Gathering was very successful and the ladies would like to thank all members of the public who supported them.

At the AGM, held in June, it was agreed that donations be sent to Cerebra, Admiral Nurses (Dementia UK), National Autistic Society, St Richards Hospice, The Buddy Bag Foundation and Where Next.

We continue to support Redditch Food Bank with monthly donations.

We are also pleased to support The Butterfly Tree charity which is raising funds to buy a spray which is used on buildings and which eradicates mosquitoes for up to three years. This is a highly important breakthrough in combating malaria.

A new item to our list is knitting, or crocheting, twiddlemuffs for people suffering from dementia.

Dawn Williams became the new club president and thanked Liz Ostroumoff for her diligence during her year in office.
