    Download and read the IWNZ Tonga Appeal Letter here.

    As you will all be aware, the effects of the volcano eruption and tsunami on January 15th 2022, have had a devastating impact on the communities of Tonga, and these will be significant for months.

    IWNZ is participating in the Rotary New Zealand World Community Service support appeal.

    They have had direct communication with the official sources in Tonga and confirm that the 538 Emergency response Kits (ERKs) in Tonga have all been distributed and are in use.

    The main issues appear to be through ash fall, getting roofs cleared, and reducing water supply contamination risks. Support from this appeal will go directly to assist with the efforts to provide water purification supplies that are in desperate need.


    We will be collecting funds directly through IWNZ bank account and then make a lump sum donation to the Rotary appeal.

    Individuals, please donate to your Club Accounts. Club Treasurers, please deposit Club funds to IWNZ account By Friday 11th February.

    If you would like to donate directly to the IWNZ appeal and do not have a Club account to donate to, please email

    In October members of Ahuriri club and friends created 45 crockery bags for the 2021 Marewa School Camp. It ws great to get feed back from the kids as to how much they appreciated our effort but also what we appreciated most was their comments that they hoped we got something back. We sure did – the pleasure of helping them enjoy camp & seeing their smiling faces.

    The club took the time to get dressed up in pink, and took to the streets of their neighborhood with their community, bubble, or by themselves to promote education and awareness, celebrate survivors, remember those of them have lost and raise vital funds to support our vision of zero deaths from breast cancer in New Zealand. As promised, they have some goodies for everyone for taking part in the virtual event, but because they also raised more than $300 on your fundraising page (thank you so much!) they also have a top fundraiser 2021 medal.

    Message from the club:

    Jan and I are pleased to report that we completed our virtual walk and raised $370 ! Many thanks to our families and friends that supported our endeavors and encouraged us to tackle this challenge once again. Here I am, nice and dry at 8.30 am on Sunday 31st October, ready for the off. We had decided also to use the Estuary Path rather than Coatesville, as the roads are not easy there in bad weather, so departed from Pioneer Village. I think the post our daughter Jo put on Instagram sums up the event very well We met Jan and friends as expected, just long enough for a quick photograph to record our efforts – There are no pictures at the end of our walk – we were far too wet and bedraggled ! the gentle drizzle turned to rather more wet rain, but it didn’t dampen our spirits.

    Oxted sale is well underway and going well. Many thanks to Jean, Beryl and Lynne who have done most of the organizing and to all of you who have volunteered their time to make this major fundraising effort a success. Please remember to record your volunteer hours so they can be included in our annual return. This was a huge amount of work, especially for Lynne, Beryl and Jean. They were ably assisted by a group of willing volunteers. It was a great chance to buy some wonderful items and for members to join together and socialize.

    During Auckland’s Lockdown 16 members of our Auckland East IW Club assisted LGFB with the assembling of this year’s Christmas Joy Crackers ready for them to be filled with the goodies. There was much coming and going in our driveway as crackers were collected for assembly and then returned.

    LGFB are very grateful for the support they received from our IW Club and wish to say a big THANK YOU.  We assembled 1800 crackers and later in the process cut up 32 reels of ribbon.

    Thank you members for your support in preparing the crackers and supporting the purchase of the finish product.
