Our International Inner Wheel President is Phyllis Charter from District 10 GB&I

Her Theme is “Together we Can”, showing the world that by being an Inner Wheel member together we can achieve our dreams and help others to achieve theirs whilst enjoying friendships in our clubs and with 110,000 other members across the globe.

Who we are


District 8 is one of the 29 Regional Districts, which make up the Association of Inner Wheel clubs of Great Britain and Ireland  (GB&I). We have 14 clubs and cover most of East Anglia’s counties of Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex with a membership of over 450. We are part of a World Wide organisation, in fact one of the largest Women’s voluntary service organizations with more than 100,000 members in 104 countries.


Objectives


Inner Wheel has three objectives :


1.To promote true friendship


2.To encourage the ideals of personal service


3.To foster international understanding


Inner Wheel members can achieve these aims through club events, which involve working together, combining personal service, fundraising, fellowship and fun. This can be in the local community and in the wider world helping others less fortunate by giving their time, financial and practical support when there is a need locally, nationally or internationally.
