Inner Wheel response to Coronavirus

With social distancing rules in force throughout Great Britain and Ireland, Inner Wheel at all levels is at present unable to hold physical meetings.

But the show must go on!

Meetings are being undertaken using Zoom and other video-conferencing methods. Members are keeping in touch by phone, email and social media.

Weekly meetings on Zoom have enabled the Association Executive to continue working and the opportunity to retain our friendship, fellowship and feel a part of the team.

This newsletter shows a small sample of the ways in which Inner Wheel members in GB&I have met of challenge of continuing to help those in need.

In friendship, Betty

Vice President Betty Roberts

  

 Drawstring bags have been made by the thousand all over Great Britain and Ireland for nurses to carry their dirty uniforms home and pop them into the wash – bags and all.

What a tremendous effort, not just the sewing, but sourcing sufficient fabric.

Many clubs have taken on the challenge of producing face masks. These are being donated to care homes and others who might need them. One club member has made many masks and the club is selling them to raise money for the local foodbank. Who says Inner Wheel members cannot ‘think outside the box?’

Some ladies have even made complete sets of ‘scrubs’ for hospitals and care homes. I have been told by one member that to sew a complete set of scrubs takes in the region of five hours. Nursing staff have commented on how colourful some of their colleagues look in these donated items. Sourcing of fabric again is a major challenge, but one that is being overcome.
