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 that we are continuing to support during 2020-2021.
District Chairman Helen has chosen to continue to have SANDS as the charity she would like us all to support until her term of office ends in December. 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 some of the items created by members of Inner Wheel District 5 Clubs. Click here for the patterns if you'd like to get involved.
