Building Stronger

In 1976 a charitable trust was established with a personal donation of $100,000 from Hamilton businessman Brian Perry and his wife Peggy. Forty years later, the Trust continues to develop strong partnerships with like minded organisations to deliver on its vision of ‘Building Stronger Communities.’
