Goods to collect

 

 

 

 

 

Jane from PCF was delighted to receive over 21 kilos of ring pulls which have been collected from District 7 .

Well done to everyone who has helped with this fantastic cause

Jane had a successful conference at Bournemouth selling lots of handbags and jewellery. She thanked us all for our support over the last 3 years. Don't stop now!

 

 

 

 

 

 

President of Grantham Inner Wheel, Kathy, member Cat and her husband Peter....(modelling a new style ring pull handbag!)  hand over ties and belts to Jane for her project in the Philippines. As she has over 90,000 ties she doesn't require anymore for the time being! These and the belts are being crafted into all sorts of  items by the families in the Philippines.

 

District Chairman Jean and  District International Chairman Pam off load 150 items of ladies clothing, 8 bags of bedding and various other pieces for Refugee Relief at their warehouse in October.

This is a very worthy cause...please keep collecting!!

Members of Grantham Inner Wheel Club have knitted satchel carrying teddy bears and donated money for the" School in a Bag ". Association Chairman Ann Acaster's Charity for the year. 

 

The bags are filled with items needed by children for use in schools in very poor areas around the world. The club's International Service Organiser , Veronica Phillips , says the Bears would be a personal gift to those children who have very few possessions of their own and would act as a reminder to them of how important going to school and education is.
