Inner Wheel of Truro links with Figeac in France
During Covid the Inner Wheel Club of Truro has established links with a similar club in France. The Truro ladies raise funds for charities such as The Refuge and Macmillan Cancer Care and our local hospice. The ladies in Figeac have supported
Resto du Coeur a French National charity which distributes food packages and hot meals to those in need and have also helped finance a Black Labrador called LOL. He has been trained to help comfort battered children and women to regain a little confidence. At the heart of their adversity many battered women and children cannot communicate with other human beings but will “off-load” to an animal.
So here are all these ladies linking across the Channel helping good causes while enjoying each other’s company and friendship.
Recently both sides signed a charter pledging their friendship and links. The process was managed via Zoom so they could see other and share a toast of Champagne! They look forward to the day when they can meet up in person when Covid is beaten for good.
