Margarette Golding Award Recipients

The Margarette Golding Award is an International Inner Wheel Award created, in 2000, in the name of Margarette Golding, the founder of Inner Wheel, for highly commendable personal service to the community

Nominations can be submitted for either a member of Inner Wheel or members of the general public whom the Club/District wish to honour.

The Award is to be given to a person who has given outstanding personal service to the local or wider community, which must be completely unconnected with work on behalf of Inner Wheel or for Inner Wheel fundraising.

The criteria for success are set high so that the award remains a truly significant marker of an individual’s commitment to others.
