The Atherton Community Trust Limited works in and with the Atherton Community. The Trustees are from a wide variety of backgrounds, including local Councillors, community activists, representitives from industry, and business all local to Atherton.
Our aims are to promote and engage with the community and work together with the many community groups as possible to ensure their future. We are all passionate about our town and will endeavour to make it a place to be proud of.
Our latest goal is to gain a successful Business Case for a Community Asset Transfer of the York Street Building/Library from Wigan Council to provide facilities for young people, veterans and arts and theatre; a very, very exciting ambition!
We are a registered not-for-profit charity, and all the proceeds go back for the benefit of the Atherton Community! Which cannot be guaranteed with the large corporate charity organisations.
We also want to promote Atherton as a place to invest, live happily and socialise. Our aim is to help to promote the histroy of Atherton and its legacy, provide beautiful greenspaces, promote the parks and local events such as proms in the park and the Atherton Carnival.
Please help yourself and your community by joining the Atherton Lottery. Best of luck!
