    It was only 3 degrees on St. Chad’s Car Park on Saturday the 3rd July, when a hardy bunch of IW members started to set up their stall. Unloading and unpacking boxes soon warms one up ! They positioned themselves in a different spot to get the sunshine when it finally arrived, which it did midmorning and then they had to start peeling off our winter layers. Cups of coffee and good company meant the morning passed quickly and easily. The cold days kept the numbers of shoppers down but they still managed to raise nearly $300 - so not too bad. Many thanks to everyone for their donations, items and baking and to the club members for organizing this event.

    IW Club of Tautahi Canterbury had the great pleasure of hearing special guest Herb de Vries speak at last month's meeting. An Associate Professor from University of Canterbury and published researcher, he gave a fascinating and educational presentation of his current research programme, Refugee employment, unemployment & entrepreneurship with a focus on challenges and opportunities. They had an almost full turnout, and we were fully engaged, with many questions and discussions happening.

    The IW Club of Orewa and Whangaparaoa had an opportunity to showcase their Club at an Age Concern Function at Evelyn Page Village. The ladies willingly gave their time to promote the Club and talk about what being a part of Inner Wheel means to them. It was a worthwhile community awareness activity.

    The IW Club Ashburton have been supporting the local community especially the rural women and families affected by the flooding with batches of home baking. Baking was bought to a Club meeting and then distributed to those in need. This was gratefully received by the rural community in the Ashburton area as they deal with the flooding devastation.

    A wonderful report featured recently on the Ashburton Guardian to highlight the wonderful honour it is for Carol Haskett to be an International Inner Wheel Board Director. We all wish Carol all the best for her year ahead as an IIW Board Director and hope that she enjoys the experience.

    No doubt there will be Zoom meetings and opportunities for her to connect with the other Board Directors and IIW Executive over the coming year.


    Carol has been given six Non Districted Clubs based in Australia to connect with and provide a vital link between them and IIW. 

    Congratulations Carol, IWNZ is proud of you.

    Cyclone Harold caused major devastation in Vanuatu and as a result many Kindergartens/Playschools were destroyed. They get no government funding and are set up and supported by the local communities. In most cases this is very difficult and as a result most kindergartens/preschools have few if any teaching resources, play equipment and furniture.

    So Kits for Kindy project was set up.

    District NZ294 decided to make it their ISO Project for the year and each club was asked to provide books, wooden toys, crayons, chalk, pencils, scissors, paper, string, tape, glue, jigsaws, skipping ropes, balls, story books, etc.

    These were brought to the District Assembly meeting in April and we all had a lot of fun sorting and packing the boxes.  Over 30 boxes of toys/books etc were sent off to Vanuatu.  We also had money donated and used it to buy a slide for the children to play on.

    The Inner Wheel Club of Plimmerton have held stands at the two Love Local Expo's held in Porirua.  It is a great way to help raise the profile of Inner Wheel.

    The stand features photos of all our activities, a running powerpoint, silky pillows and wheatpacks we make for the cancer society, neonatal knitting and welcome packs for Women's Refuge and Hospitals.

    We also have lots of promotional material on hand with contact names and numbers. It is really important to engage with people and to take names for follow up calls.
