We've had another very busy month. We've had CPR training, collected essential toiletries for the Women's Refuge and enjoyed a Ten Pin Bowling evening with Tawa Inner Wheel.

March was another very busy month.  We had Dale Williams to talk to us at our meeting and he is always entertaining. Several members went to the District Meeting in Paraparaumu and another bunch of ladies went off to the Wairarapa for a golf/shopping couple of days. Our big fundraiser for the month was the café at the Rotary Book Fair which raised $1,500 for the Shine project - closing the gaps in reading at Porirua schools.  april_2017

Plimmerton Inner Wheel had another busy month, donating money to the Wellington Free Ambulance and giving gifts to the children whose parents are in prison. The Craft and Book Group also had lovely outings, especially the one to the Library. Just shows libraries are not all about books these days. The Christmas party was lots of fun with good food, wine and Christmas carolling.  january_2017

November proved to be another busy month for Plimmerton Inner Wheel.  We now sponsor a new World Vision child, a wee 6-year-old boy called Sithan Boun. With the proceeds raised from the sale of the Entertainment Book we were able to donate $564 to the Wellington Free Ambulance.  Through the Angel Tree, a huge amount of gifts were donated for the children of prisoners. And together with Plimmerton Rotary, we  held the Garden Trail again this year. which was a success. The inclement weather did not seem to put people off visiting the many beautiful gardens.  december_2016

We've had another busy month with lots of activities. Our fundraising event for Heart Kids - the film Bridget Jones's baby - was a great success raising $1,700. Our WOW evening and Walk and Talk with the Wairarapa ladies were a lot of fun and it was pleasing to see the money we donated to English Language Partners was put to good use with an outing for the local refugees.  october_2016
