Notice of Application to Vary Terms of a Charitable Trust

Pursuant to Section 36 of the Charitable Trusts Act 1957

In the High Court of New Zealand, Wellington Registry:

In the matter of Part 3 of the Charitable Trusts 1957, and in the matter of an application by Public Trust in relation to certain charitable trusts declared by the will of Samuel Matthias Curl, deceased, retired medical practitioner, late of Waverley, New South Wales, Australia.

Take notice that on Monday 26 November 2018 at 10.00am, or so soon thereafter as Counsel may be heard, the applicant will apply to the High Court at Wellington for an order approving a scheme to vary the terms of the charitable trusts established by the will of the late Samuel Matthias Curl.

The purpose of the application is to update such trusts on the grounds that it is now impossible or impracticable or inexpedient to carry out the purposes for which the Trust was originally established. Further particulars of the application may be obtained from the office of Public Trust at the address for service shown below.

The proposed scheme and the Attorney-General’s report are also available for inspection free of charge at the High Court at Wellington.

  2. Public Trust at the address for service below; and
  3. The Attorney-General at the Crown Law Office, PO Box 2858, Wellington 6140
