The Thirty Three are a charity fundraising group based in Timperley, Altrincham, some eight miles south of Manchester, England. They were formed in 1945, and meet fortnightly to support deserving - smaller - local persons or causes. The members, their partners, families, friends and neighbours also enjoy a number of social events. Thirty three was the maximum number of subscribing members from the start. It's a few years since that full figure was achieved, but, with the active help of supporters, the work has gone from strength to strength.
