Altrusa International Inc. of Nelson is a group of people who are leaders in service supporting our community with service and leadership. We meet on the second (2nd) Wednesday of each month except January in The Club at Summerset Village, Stoke. We also meet for coffee and a chat at Cafe Divine, Summerset Village at 10:30 a.m. on the Saturday week following our Business meeting (on the second Wednesday of the month). We would love you to join us. We are a volunteer organisation recognising needs in the community and meeting them with practical support and service. Our wider focus is literacy and encouraging self development. One of our local projects is Altrusa House situated in the grounds of Nelson Hospital and used by families of out-of-town patients. It is fully utilised on a day-to-day basis and managed by a board of trustees.
