There are usually two major fund-raising events a year, together with Inner Wheel Day in January. Other events include trips to gardens, the theatre and other venues.
The three objects of Inner Wheel are very simple. They are to promote true friendship, encourage the ideals of personal service and to foster international understanding. Inner Wheel is a caring organisation, not only to its members, but also to others outside its circle.
Friendship is the core of all that is done and achieved by members of Inner Wheel. Wherever there is an Inner Wheel Club, no matter in which country, you are made very welcome. Friendship and fun abounds as members work together to help others less fortunate than themselves, not only in this country, but overseas.
