The Rotary Club Of Altrincham Trust Fund
Who we are
Rotary Club of Altrincham, part of Rotary International, supports both International and Local charities. We organise many fundraising events, including Santa's Grottos, Race nights, Gala Dinners and collections in several locations throughout Altrincham.
Our members also give of their time and efforts to help the local community. Recently we have provided support to: Childrens Adventure Farm Trust, Salvation Army, Macmillan Cancer Support, St John Ambulance, Altrincham and Sale Sea Cadets and many more local organisations. Internationally we have helped raise funds for Disaster Aid UK & Ireland and aid to Africa and Asia.
Our members give of their time and efforts freely so that 100% of funds raised go to the beneficiaries with no deductions.
About Rotary International
Rotary International is the worldwide organisation to which all Rotary clubs belong and may be described as, “A worldwide network of inspired individuals who translate their passions into relevant social causes to change lives in communities.”
There are over 33,000 Rotary Clubs with more than 1.2 million members worldwide. Each Rotary Club is autonomous and therefore unique with its own traditions and preferences but all Rotary Clubs follow the same ideals and aims. The motto of Rotary International is - “Service above Self”. We have a brief history where you can learn more.
Like most organisations we have a "Mission Statement", except that we call it the Object of Rotary.
Many people have also heard of our 4-Way Test and used it for themselves in their business and personal lives. Rotarians are expected to adhere to high ethical standards in their businesses and professions and to that end a Code of Conduct was adopted in 1989 (revised and updated in 2013) providing more specific guidelines for the high ethical standards called for in the Object of Rotary.
Rotary clubs are grouped into Districts for convenience of administration, co-operation, networking and fellowship. The Rotary Club of Altrincham belongs to Rotary District 1285 and is one of over 70 Rotary clubs within this District.
It is the unique combination of being part of a large organisation, whilst at an individual Club level being relatively small, that allows Rotary International to function at many different levels in society.
