Margarette Golding Recipient – Vivienne Anderson

Margarette Golding Award – Vivienne Anderson

The Inner Wheel Club of Norther Beaches Inc had no hesitation in nominating Vivienne Anderson for the prestigious Margarette Golding Award.  Vivienne over many years has met the criteria of being involved with a variety of charities and organisations within her community for a very long time showing a great deal of commitment and dedication on a regular basis.
Vivienne has a wonderful talent in quilt making and has used this skill to create in excess of 50 quilts that have been donated to families following natural disasters such as bush fires as well as to Bear Cottage, a children’s hospice, and Stuart House, which provides residential care for children from rural areas when in need.  Vivienne has also provided activity cushions for dementia patients as well as sensory snakes to children with intellectual disabilities.
Many other areas of need in her community have benefited greatly from Vivienne’s generous nature and spirit including Dalwood Homes (which assists families in need), Balmoral Beach Surf Club and the Hope for Children’s foundation (an NGO working to transform the lives of the vulnerable).
In addition Vivienne has been a much loved member of Inner Wheel since 1981, serving in all Executive positions including IWA President and IIW Board Director.

Iris Forno passed away peacefully at the age of 106. Iris was as Charter member and Charter Secretary of the Cairns Inner Wheel Club formed in 1961.  Iris was President in 1972 – 73 and held various positions.  She remained a member till her death. She diligently kept a history of the Cairns Club on a typewriter for many years. She never forgot a face and was so agile. One of Iris’s last official duties as a member was to light the Candle of Friendship at last year’s conference in Cairns. Iris was a legend among Inner Wheel members.  We will miss you Iris.

Another donation of Bush Fire Appeal funds by IWA

Bush Fire Appeal Funds to Upper River Torrens, SA

14 September, 2020

The Upper River Torrens Landcare Group were presented with a donation of $3000 by Inner Wheel.  This donation went towards revegetation of the Cudlee Creek area which was impacted by the 2019 bush fires.

The donation would greatly help support property owners who wish to restore/replace wildlife habitat impacted by the fire. Some of which are still recovering from the 2015 fires. Funds would go towards several different aspects:

  • Co-ordination, catering, facilities for 10 planting events (up to 25 volunteers at each event requiring provisions).
  • Purchase of materials for weed control, fencing, tree
  • Purchase of materials for batching/distribution of plants (e.g. tubestock holders, fertilizer granules, tags).
  • Purchase of 5 additional Hamilton Tree Planters (they currently own one)
