Two Griffith organisations celebrated the festive season by giving back to the community.
The Inner Wheel East Griffith branch have donated hampers full of food to the Griffith Women’s refuge, a service providing supported crisis accommodation to women and children.
Inner wheel’s Carmel La Rocca said it was important to give back.
“We were lucky enough to get two hampers down there to bring a little bit of cheer to people,” she said.
She also commended the hard work of the refuge’s staff.
“It’s a place for people who need a little help. They can go and seek help. It’s a great resource for our community. The people there are lovely.”
The hampers contained a variety of chocolates, biscuits and other food.
“We have to thank the people who donated for the hampers. They came from all around our Inner Wheel district.”
Donations were collected at Inner Wheel’s most recent district meeting.
Inner Wheel is an international organisation closely linked to Rotary. It was initially founded to unite wives and daughters of Rotarians. Before 1989, Rotary generally prohibited women as members.
While women are now able to join Rotary, Inner Wheel continues in over 100 countries.
