The Hororata Community Trust was registered as a charitable trust in August 2011 with a vision  ‘to provide the resources to promote, foster and develop Hororata and its wider community.’ The Trust covers a large geographic area, from the Hororata Village to Coalgate, Glentunnel, Glenroy, Windwhistle and Lake Coleridge.

Our patrons’ are a core group of people from around New Zealand who actively support the work the Hororata Community Trust is doing in the community. The patrons’ make a financial investment in the Trust but more than that they provide a valuable network which can benefit many community projects.

The Hororata Community Trust has gained a reputation for offering exciting, engaging and different functions under the Tartan Club event brand. Patrons’ enjoy the networking  with a great variety of people from across New Zealand at these events.

The highlight of the Tartan Club calendar is the Hororata Highland Games. The Tartan Club offers a  prestigious area which is exclusively accessed by ticket only. Guests relax in the Tartan Club marquee, enjoy quality food throughout the day and experience the Hororata Highland Games VIP style. Hororata Community Trust Patron’s mingle with the VIP Chieftain and key corporate guests.

In 2017 we have a Ceilidh (a Scottish Dance) planned on the 7th of July in Hororata with an international act headlining this event. Also we will hold a exclusive Patron’s only Hororata Whisky launch to be held in September at Whisky Galore.
