Inner Wheel Australia is most appreciative of the support given to our National Project, Cord Blood Research, by Treloar Roses. Since 2015 Treloar Roses has donated a portion of sales of the ‘Gift of Friendship’ Rose, with a total of $7015 being donated in that time.
The 2020 IWA Changeover was to have been held in Blayney, NSW, 12-13 June. However, the function has now been cancelled.
The IWA Executive is very disappointed but the decision was made in accordance with Government advice in relation to COVID-19.
