The Roy & Enid Nicol Charitable Trust


The Roy and Enid Nicol Trust was created by Mrs Enid Hartridge Nicol in her Will and became operative following Mrs Nicol’s death in Auckland on 14 September 1971. Mrs Nichol originally immigrated from Australia. Following her marriage to Roy Nicol, Mrs Nicol spent her married life in Te Aroha. The Trust was established to provide a charitable and educational fund for the benefit of institutions and private persons resident within a ten mile radius of Te Aroha Post Office. The first grants were paid in 1973 and totalled $350. The New Zealand Guardian Trust Company is trustee of Mrs Nicol’s Will and manages the Trust Fund. In terms of the Will, a Board of Trustees is appointed to consider the applications for funding. The Board comprises four persons, one being a representative of the New Zealand Guardian Trust Company Limited.
