News from the club

Chris is the most green-fingered member of our club, and every year she raises very generous sums both for Club charities and the local parish church in plant sales.

Her final contribution from this year’s plant sales was £100, and it was her wish that some of it could be given to Wingletang, our local animal rescue centre. All club members were very happy to agree to this request  for the whole sum and we then also donated some food, treats and toys.

The photo shows Chris & President Jan, presenting the cheque to retired greyhound Rosie who is looking for a home.  Quite how Jan didn’t come home with Rosie, and Chris didn’t adopt another couple of cats the rest of us are not sure, as they are a pair of real softies where are 4 footed friends are concerned!!!

The staff of Wingletang were overwhelmed at the donation, sadly they are bracing themselves for an influx of new animals looking for homes in the period after Christmas.

Tavistock Club Inner Wheel Day- Tavistock members decided that this year we would like to help women locally who are in need of love and support at a very difficult time in their life, and were thrilled to be able to make up 16 Pamper Bags of toiletries to be passed on with our love through the Trevi organisation in Plymouth.

On a very wet Thursday afternoon in Tavistock, President Jan and members of the club were delighted to welcome Penny who had come down from Bristol to show off the Spring collection of Cabi clothing, members of Roborough, Bodmin & Helston Inner Wheel clubs and representatives of the Mary Budding Trust along with a bevy of local ladies

The 5 models (!!), 3 members and 2 friends, had all been up to President Jan’s on Monday and had a lot of fun trying on an assortment of items, all of which Penny then photographed to whittle down what we would wear for the show, which meant that we all wore 4 or 5 different outfits.

There was lots of laughter, lots of ‘zhuzzing’ both by Penny and the audience, a technical term for pushing up, tucking in, folding back and pulling down, all washed down with tea, coffee and cake.

£250 was raised on the afternoon with more to come from commissions from Penny, the Chairman of the Mary Budding Trust was very grateful for all the support, and promptly booked an event for her team.

We would like to thank all those who attended, with a special mention to Wendy who called in on her way from Exeter to home, and to Hilary and Graham for coming up from Bodmin, and also to Robert, Simon & David who helped shifting tables and chairs, serving refreshments, doing the washing up and generally making life a lot easier for us all.
