Notice of Application for Approval of a Scheme
Part 3 of the Charitable Trusts Act 1957
Take notice that on Thursday, 22 January 2009, an application for orders approving a scheme prepared under section 34
of the Charitable Trusts Act 1957 in relation to the Ann Sinclair Charitable Trust ("the trust") was filed in the High Court at Wellington.
The application is to be heard before the High Court at Wellington on Tuesday, 24 March 2009 at 10.00am.
Any person desiring to oppose the scheme must, not less than seven clear days before the hearing date, give written notice of their intention to do so to:
(a) the Registrar of the High Court at Wellington;
(b) the trustee; and
(c) the Attorney-General.
The trust's charitable purposes include:
(a) the provision of financial assistance to boys for education in farming; and
(b) the funding of farm training institutions willing to enrol boys who would qualify for financial assistance from the trust.
The scheme proposes to amend the charitable purposes
of the trust and/or extend the powers of the trustee or vary the mode of administering the trust so that every reference to "boys" is amended to read "boys and girls".
The intended consequence of this amendment is to enable the trust's funds to be used to provide financial assistance to both male and female applicants.
At present, the trust is only empowered to assist with the education and training of males.
The applicant is Presbyterian Support Central, whose address for service is at the offices of DLA Phillips Fox, Solicitors, 5th Floor, 50-64 Customhouse Quay, Wellington.
Further particulars may be obtained from the office of the Court or from the applicant or the applicant's solicitor, Fiona Mary Gawith, on telephone (04) 918 3056.
