About the club:

The Inner Wheel Club of Kettering was chartered in 1935 and is the oldest club in District 7.

Kettering is well known for Wicksteed Park which covers 100 acres. The land was purchased by Charles Wicksteed to create a pleasure park for the local people. Many of the traditional roundabouts have gone but in their place are more sophisticated rides.

The handover to Ann Bannister our President for 2016/17 took place at our club lunch. Ann has several events arranged for the year raising funds for her nominated Charity "Equata". This local charity provides horse assisted therapy for all people but mainly children and young people with mental health or social issues. 

 

 

 

Our club have an active walking group which meets once a month. During May we took part in a walk around Pitsford Reservoir to raise funds for President Margriet's Charities, Pets as Therapy and Youth Works Community Interest Company. 

 

 


Members enjoying our Annual Hunger Lunch which this year was held at Kettering Rugby Club.

The proceeds along with money raised from other events during the year have been  donated to various International charities. The money has been used to purchase Life Straws and Mosquito nets and a donation to Smile Train

 

 

A Coffee Morning  was held at a members house during December to raise funds for National President Zena Charity "Beat. It was enjoyed by all of us that attended and was all the more enjoyable for the "nibbles and tipple".

A very successful International Tea was held in December with members from many clubs attending. Our speaker was Geoff Blurton and a donation was made to him for the purchase of mosquito nets. The remainder of the proceeds will be given to International Charities during the year.
