TARRAS COMMUNITY TRUST

WHO ARE WE, WHAT DO WE DO?
The current TCT trustees are:
Holger Reinecke-Chairperson,
Beau Trevathan, Billee Marsh, Shaun Burdon, Mark Davidson, Marilyn Duxon, Spin Lucas, Kate Anderson, Rebecca Chapman-Cohen.

The purpose of the Trust is any charitable purpose which benefits all or any part of the Tarras Community. This includes facilitating access to funding for groups, helping in the provision and maintenance of community facilities and assisting and promoting initiatives for the social, amenity, health and recreational benefit of the Tarras community.
Previous projects include promoting and assisting the Tarras Water Company, initial funding for the Tarras School history book, funding video histories of the area, providing a defibrillator, establishing the Tarras web site, among others.

WE HAVE FUNDS, HOW DO YOU WANT TO USE THEM?
The Trust has received several bequests and would like to make part of these funds available for community use. Thank you to those families concerned.
We invite individuals and groups to provide suggestions for using these funds e.g. assistance for recreational and sporting groups, support for cultural and educational events, refurbishment of facilities, promotion of the Tarras region etc.
Email suggestions to Shaun: info@tarras.org.nz

To be more effective in supporting the community a larger fund is required so you might like to consider a donation or bequest as a source of assistance.
