About District 25
Who we are
Our district is made up of nine clubs that range across the Surrey and Sussex counties. We have Midhurst and Petworth at one end and Seaford at the other. All nine clubs meet regularly, organising their own programmes which include speakers on topics of interest and social and service activities that help the local community.
The District is run by a District Executive Team which is made up of a District Chairman, a District Treasurer, a District Secretary, a District Membership and Development Officer, a District Editor and an International Service Chairman.
This year our District Chairman is Gail Elhinn from The Inner Wheel Club of Lewes. She asks us to reflect on how much impact Inner Wheel has had since its formation in Manchester in 1924 particularly in our Centenary year.
Who we support
We support a wide range of charities and community groups; these can be small projects that individual clubs have chosen to support, to larger national and international organisations.
District Chairman Gail has chosen ‘Farming Community Network’ a small charity under the auspices of the Church of England, which provides a lifeline for farmers. They give advice and referrals on legal, agricultural and personal matters to an industry in which the suicide and poverty rates are high.
