The Ionian Club is not a fund-raising organisation:
The concept is to create a meeting place for women. Members are aware of the needs of others in the community. They help one another to assimilate into a new community and support each other in times of need.
Although fund-raising is not part of our Basic Rules, Ionian members feel they would like to make a small annual donation to a charity and each club decides on the group they wish to support.
Each year the Newcastle Ionian Club members suggest a charity, usually a smaller one and preferably located in the local district and a vote is taken on which charity to support for the year.
We have conducted raffles to raise funds, and we have held fund-raising events to raise money for the chosen charities.
Details of our fund-raiser and other activities can be found under Club Activities and Excursions.
