In January, they celebrated Inner Wheel Day at the Picasso restaurant followed by a visit to Cure hospital on the 20th of January to donate gifts to the sick children. The club supports one of the new members Sandy Trevathan with her initiative the Wai Lucky Trust in Cheleka.  She started the initiative by turoring girls who were failing to graduate from school and then trained them to teach other students with learning difficulties.  The members donated stationery, sanitary pads, biscuits, cold drinks, maize, blankets and clothing.  Working hand in hand brought the members together for a good cause.
