About Inner Wheel Club of Bombay West
Inner Wheel Club of Bombay West has a rich history to look back, as it completes 50 years of service to society. As our Founder member & Past District Chairman Sarayu Shah reminisces, Inner Wheel Club of Bombay West was formed on 30th November, 1966 & received its charter on 9th March, 1967 with Madhuben Desai as the Founder President. Rtn. Chatrabhujbhai Narsee, PDG. D.M. Desai & Mohanbhai Patel made a lion share of contribution to the formation & lent a helping hand to make Inner Wheel Club of Bombay West, self sufficient. Subsequent Presidents like Jayashree Daru, Sandra Shroff, Sarayu Shah, Nergis Sorabjee worked hard to bring glory to the Club. The 1st Fund Raising in those days was a Fashion Show, which served the purpose of forming a nidus for initial projects. The major Project remembered by all & appreciated by many, was running the Medical Centre of Rotary Club of Bombay West.. Nergis Sorabjee & Sandra Shroff, contributed to the success story with their own effort, which benefitted many.
Bombay West was a part of District 315 & later with growth, when bifurcation occurred, we became part of District 314, which remains so even now.
Each President has added a special flavour to the Club & taken it to greater heights.
