PRESIDENT 2019-2020

I have been a member of the club for 9 years, and my husband Adam is a Rotarian. We have two daughters, Claudia 23ys and Isabella 20yrs.

I started work as a full time photographic/fashion/film extra model in the 1980's, working for companies such as Ripcurl, Princess Yachts, Sky TV and many more. I then went on to own a model agency for eight years with a workforce of 130 people and retired from modelling in 1995. Following this I took over running the family retail jewellery business - Wearnes - Est 1890, which, at that time, was based in Camborne and Helston. We now have retail jewellery shops in Helston and Falmouth as well as an on line shop, and I wholesale my own jewellery brand, Cornish Tin & Gold/Silver, to other jewellers throughout the county.

I have a love for anything creative, and enjoy my two horses and West Highland Terrier - Daisy. I love gardening, motor sailing with Adam and the girls, and very much enjoy socializing with the many great friends made at Helston-Lizard Inner Wheel.

I'd like to give you an update on the progress made so far on organizing the 'Sleepout' on the 7th December, aimed at raising awareness of homelessness and raising money for St.Petrocs. Full information click here

We now have a live page on Eventbrite click below https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-inner-wheel-sleepout-tickets-77080867951?utm_term=eventurl_text whereby people can buy tickets. If you go to their homepage and put - 'homeless' into the search bar, the details will come up and you will be able to purchase a ticket. BF Adverture has kindly allowed me to use their Eventbrite account to enable us to do this, it has also been shared on our Inner Wheel Facebook page to you all to share again.

I have made the arrival time 8.30pm. People with tickets are expected to bring their own sleeping bags, blankets, roll mats etc. Their ticket just buys the floor space.

At 9pm John Head has kindly agreed to be the compere for 45 - 50 minutes of entertainment. He has managed to secure 4 acts already, and has 2 more which he thinks will also help. Each speaking for 5 to 7 minutes. This will include music, laughter, magic and a Christmas story. He said that he has had a great response in securing the acts for us.

I would like to stipulate that this evening should be an alcohol free night, as often alcoholism often goes hand in hand with homelessness. I will be selling hot cocoa and cake during the evening, and would love some help with a few cakes if possible please.

'Lights out' will be enforced at 10.30pm by staff at BF for a bit of fun!

Chris and Julia Dale (Dale's Butchers) have very kindly donated bacon, sausages and eggs, so that the next morning we can offer a full English breakfast at BF's kitchen which we helped to fund raise for recently. It will be fantastic to use this facility and appreciate where our help went.

Julia and Roy Treloar have kindly offered to cook the breakfasts which we will charge £5 a head for. (They have since been excused from sleeping rough!! Ha Ha). Some help with washing up, waitressing etc would be appreciated here too please.

I have spoken to St.Petrocs and they will provide some information about St.Petrocs to display at the event.

I would like to donate funds raised from the floor space bookings (£10 a bum!) to St.Petrocs , all of the funds raised for the breakfasts to BF, and the remainder for cake an cocoa sold to Inner Wheel miscellaneous charities which we will donate to at the end of the year.

There are toilet facilities close to the barn, a torch would be advisable to bring along too!

I realise that sleeping rough is a lot to ask of you all, as it will be cold, so please don't be embarrassed if not taking part over night, but your support in terms of perhaps a cake or washing up etc would be fantastic.

As well as increasing awareness of homeless people and raising money for the wonderful charity St.Petrocs, I hope to make the event fun. It is amazing what Inner Wheelers and Rotarians achieve when we all pull together, so please support as much as you can and encourage your family and friends to join in.

If you would like help with purchasing the tickets on Eventbrite, please let me know.

Many thanks girls in anticipation of your help and support and thank you all for your friendship.

Kind Regards,

Sarah XX

Report 2018 - 2019

At our December meeting members brought and wrapped presents for onward transmission to the women's refuge in Penzance which were greatly appreciated. We also made a donation to the Salvation Army in lieu of exchanging Christmas cards.
Inner Wheel Day was celebrated with a walk and lunch, provided by Wendy Wallis, with donations in aid of Parkinson's. As in previous years the weather was kind to us!
Drinks and nibbles at the home of Debbie Osborne raised some much needed funds for Bishop's Forum, and was enjoyed by all.
In March Members, friends and family had their minds exercised at a Murder Mystery evening at Rosewarne Manor, taking on the role of sleuths and raising money for our President's chosen charity Sea Sanctuary.
This was shortly followed by a visit to the "escape room" at Newlyn, a truly unforgettable experience.
The annual Bluebell Walk and lunch at the home of Joy Porch was once again enjoyed by all.
A coffee morning to support a pre-school in Mozambique was extremely successful, and our busy year was topped off with a most entertaining Car Treasure Hunt, followed by a cream tea at Anne Russell's.
We have been lucky to enjoy a variety of speakers at our monthly meetings including; a talk by a Street Pastor, and some very interesting slide shows.
  Helston/Lizard had an interesting talk on St Petroc's and Sarah Corbridge,our President, presented Lois Wild from St Petrocs presents and useful items donated by Club members. Members are all getting ready for our "sleeping rough" on Saturday 7 December 2019 to experience the way the homeless live and cope with the cold temperatures at night.
