Cyclone Gabrielle Appeal & Friendship Getaways

We have raised just over $53,000! Inner Wheel New Zealand would like to express our sincere Thanks to all Individuals and clubs both Nationally and Internationally for the donations received.


Cyclone Newsletter #1 - List of recipients and thank you messages

This Appeal was started to support our communities in the North Island of Aotearoa New Zealand, following unexpected flooding and Cyclone Gabrielle. You can read 2022-2023 National President Alyssandra's full Appeal Letter here.

Many cities, small towns and rural areas are greatly affected with many now in need. Survivors report how waters dramatically rose in the dark, early morning hours while many were asleep. As the waters are retreating, Our People are realising the loss of their personal possessions, massive home destruction, and livelihoods.

The National Appeal committee, working alongside the National Governing Body, has been in touch with Clubs with the nomination process for Clubs and individuals to complete in order for us to distribute the funds collected effectively and efficiently to individuals, families and community groups in the hardest hit areas.

Friendship Getaways

This is Phase 2 of the IWNZ Cyclone Gabrielle Appeal, with the aim of helping victims of Cyclone Gabrielle by offering them a getaway treat.
