Who we support
We support a wide range of charities and community groups; these can be small projects
that individual clubs have chosen to support, to larger national and international organisations. These are some of the charities we are supporting this year.
This year our District Chairman Helen has chosen
SANDS as the charity she would like us all to support.
This national charity works to reduce the
number of babies dying and to improve care and
support for anyone affected by the death of a baby.
Every day in the UK around 15 babies die before,
during or soon after birth. That means every 90 minutes
a family is faced with the devastation of the death of
their baby. This is unacceptable.
As well as fundraising, we are supporting this charity
by knitting & crocheting blankets to go in the Memory
Boxes that the charity provides for parents and families
who have lost a baby. The picture on the right shows

District 5 Clubs. Click here for the patterns if you'd like

Chairman, Shamim Govani, has chosen Working
Together to Prevent Malaria as her fundraising
project for the year. Inner Wheel will be working in
The focus will be to raise awareness of the need to
prevent Malaria and also to raise funds.
Our Association President, Enid Law has chosen
Riding for the Disabled as her charity for this year.
This national charity enriches the lives of over 25,000
disabled children and adults with fun activities like riding
and carriage driving.
Clubs throughout District 5 will be raising funds to
support this valuable work.
