100 Items for Inner Wheel's 100 Years

29 Feb 2024 8:46 AM | Anonymous

Two Clubs have had the wonderful idea of making 100 items to be donated, in honour of Inner Wheel's 100 year anniversary! 

Yvonne, a very talent Member of the IW Club of New Plymouth North, tackled the task of knitting 100 items with the help of her trusty canine helper, Molly. Yvonne knit 100 pairs of booties for the Taranaki Hopsital's Neo Natal Unit, 100 pairs of slippers for Barnados and made up 100 toiletry bags donated to WITT students who aren't as fortunate as others.

The ladies of the IW Club of Invercargill South also gave themselves the challenge of knitting 100 items! They knit 100 pairs of socks and 100 beanies, assembled them into 100 packs and donated them to the Maternity Ward at Southland Hospital on International Inner Wheel Day. The 100 little pairs were donated to the first 100 babies that were born from midnight on the 10th of January, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of our International organisation. The time and effort put in by the Club Members was greatly appreciated by the staff. The Southland Times were also in attendance to record the occasion, and an excellent article was published the following Saturday. You can read the article here on page 3 (News section).
