    The Inner Wheel Club of Palmerston North donated new pyjamas to the Children's Ward of Palmerston North Hospital.

    It came to the Club's attention that with winter coming on, children need warm pyjamas especially after they have been in hospital. The call went out to our members to bring new pyjamas to the next meeting. We were overjoyed by the response with well over $1000 worth of pyjamas, nighties and dressing gowns being given. Julie (Club President) and Sue (Club Treasurer) made the presentation.

    Chantal (Club Vice-President) and Nadine (Club Membership) were honoured to represent the IW Club of Nouméa Plaisance at the IWNZ Conference in Wellington in May 2023. They've highlighted what a pleasure it was to see everyone again after these tumultuous years; the links are still there and the Conference was superb.  

    With 19 current Members, the Club was first chartered in 1988 and will celebrate its 35th anniversary this year. The New Caledonian Inner Wheel Members demonstrate feelings of humanity and solidarity with others through multiple actions to help women and children in particular, without forgetting men, throughout the New Caledonia island and abroad. The Club has great connections with Rotary Clubs and often take part in joint actions with them.

    Since 2021, the Club has committed to supporting the "Relay Apartments" system of the South Province. They have been raising funds necessary to buy kits (including beds, table, fridge, etc.) for families moving out of their temporary housing. They have also signed an agreement with the CCAS (community center for social action) of Nouméa, police, doctors and psychologists to help as part of this "Relay Apartments" system. Their efforts have been very successful in helping families in distress and the Club would like to thank District NZ291 for the help they have provided. The Club is also planning on hosting a fundraising concert in September, featuring women's choirs, jazz, and other kinds of music.

    The Club is also proud to report that earlier in June, they presented a cheque to 30 students of the Collège de Normandie to fund their trip to Napier in September (pictured above). The students were very thankful to the Club and performed two songs they have prepared for their upcoming trip.

    The Club supports many different organisations and projects in the community. Through collections, they've supported the organisation Avec (help with medical evacuations) and they've funded dance lessons for extraordinary children, teenagers and adults (disabled). They're supporting a newly created women's soccer team, participated in the award ceremonies for a book club for young people and hosted a Friendship table at the yearly Telethon to help raise funds to support medical research. The Club contributed to the online IWNZ Cyclone Gabrielle Appeal, and Chantal and Nadine also brought along a 22kg suitcase filled with clothes, slippers, beanies and socks made and donated by the Club to the IWNZ Conference.

    In May 2023, the IW Club of Palmerston North donated two wheelchairs to Parkinson's Manawatu and it came to our notice that people with Parkinson's do not have access to a wheelchair for appointments etc if they need a wheelchair. A lot of members cannot afford a wheelchair of their own. 

    Our club decided to buy a new wheelchair which cost $799 and we had another wheelchair donated to us from Sue Carpenter which was Sue's mother who had passed away. Sue was pleased the wheelchair was going to a good cause. 

    - Julie Watson (Club President)

    An article was published in the Manawatu Guardian about this donation - you can read it here.

    Days for Girls
    by Juliet Allen 

    Last November I attended the Days for Girls conference held at the Home of Compassion in Wellington. I experienced three days with many inspiring and innovative women and one man who had an amazing story. There was a very interesting video link with Celeste Mergens in the USA. Celeste is the founder of Days for Girls and is a truly amazing, energetic and inspiring person.

    One person told of when distributing Days for Girls kits in Kaitaia, a woman asked for two kits, saying that she was so grateful to have a Christmas present for both of her two daughters.

    Auckland East Inner Wheel has been sewing for Days for Girls for seven years.

    Days for Girls kits are now being included in the Rotary Emergency Response Kits.

    The Inner Wheel Club of Tawa finally got to celebrate their 40th Birthday on the 26th March 2023.  The Club was chartered in 1982 and was to recognise 40 years of service last year, however Covid intervened and the decision was made to postpone the party until 2023.

    Charter, past and present Members attended along with dignitaries from IWNZ, NZ294 and corresponding Clubs.

    Each club Member was presented with a certificate to mark the occasion before the specially designed cake was cut by our remaining Charter Members.

    The Tawa club was established through the work of Clare and Bill Russell who, on returning to Wellington after living in Oamaru and having been a part of the Oamaru Inner Wheel and Rotary, wished to see a club developed in the Tawa area.  After many discussions and meetings, the club was endorsed by Tawa Rotary and the first meeting was held March 1982.

    The IW Club of Kapiti is proud to announce they will be handing over 20 quilts, among other goods and financial assistance, to an IW Member in the Hawke's Bay for distribution to those in the Hawke's Bay community who have been affected by the weather events of the past few months. The quilts were donated by the Kapiti Quilt Club, of which Kapiti President Judith and Member Kate are members. Below is an excerpt from IW Club of Kapiti's March 2023 Newsletter.

    At our committee meeting I greeted the ladies with a wonderful surprise with over 20 quilts that have been donated by the Kapiti Quilt Club which myself and Kate are members of. I will have much pleasure in giving these directly to an Inner Wheel Club member from the Hawkes Bay at the District Empowerment Day, who can then pass them out in their community. This is on top of another donation of goods, plus a monetary payment. My sincere thanks to everyone who has supported our sisters in the Hawkes Bay District.

    In Friendship,

    President Judith
