The first Rotary Peace Award was awarded in 2016 to Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod and the Eisteddfod now provides the platform for the presentation of the prize.

Rotary International is one of the largest humanitarian organisations in the world and is made up of 1.23 million Rotarians worldwide who work in their local, national and international communities to help those in need.

District 1180 stretches from Mid Wales up to Lancashire and includes all of North Wales, Wirral, Merseyside, parts of Shropshire and Cheshire. Rotary clubs meet regularly in most towns and are made up of men and women from 18 upwards from all backgrounds regardless of race, colour or creed.  The Rotary motto is "Service Above Self".  

Rotarians work as volunteers in many diverse areas which can be anything from assisting young carers in the local community to have some time to themselves, to providing humanitarian aid to countries who have suffered a major disaster such as the Nepal earthquakes or the floods in Cumbria and Lancashire.
