of Bodmin Inner Wheel Club have been undeterred by the current
restrictions and have been meeting in small groups for socially
distanced coffee mornings or afternoon tea at our local herb nursery
cafe, this helps us to keep in touch and share ideas for support
one another through the restrictions.
have made Scrubs bags for our local hospital staff who were delighted
to receive them, fabric face masks to protect ourselves and to
sell to raise funds for The Smile Train Charity and our knitters
have made 500 jumpers for overseas charities as well as blankets.
next project is to make heart cushions for breast cancer patients
undergoing surgery, I am told that they are the ideal size and
shape to provide comfort post-operatively.
ladies are taking part in a monthly raffle which also raises funds
and provides a little excitement as we wait to find out who has
won each month.
has organised a walking group that has undertaken local walks
along the Camel Trail here in Bodmin and a local history walk
around the town. Julie, our Club Correspondent is writing a newsletter
every few months to keep us up to date and we all talk regularly
over the phone (no Zoom meetings yet but perhaps in the future
we will try this).
although we cannot meet as usual we are keeping in touch and supporting
each other in many ways as is The Inner Wheel way.
look forward to seeing our fellow Inner Wheel Clubs in the near
future - Terri Young
