Hucknall’s Inner Wheel recently presented two wheelchairs to a local practice after successful fundraising efforts.

The District 22 chairman, Carole O’Connor, visited the town’s club for their meeting and was pleased to witness President Carolyn Ward handing over the wheelchairs to Sally Haywood from the Torkard Hill Medical Practice.

Sally thanked Carolyn and the members of the club explaining that the wheelchairs would be hired out to patients on a short term basis.

This year sees Inner Wheel celebrating its 90th anniversary and members have been encouraged to commemorate this event by supporting “The Wheels Project”. Hucknall members organised a Cheese and Wine Evening and a Coffee Evening to raise funds for the much needed wheelchairs.
