  • BPCT Celebrates 40 Years

    On Thursday 16th June, the Brian Perry Charitable Trust celebrated its 40th birthday, with a look at the past, present and future of the Trust.

    The evening was a celebration of the Brian Perry Charitable Trust's history, values and the mark it has made on Hamilton and the wider Waikato Region.

    Long-time Trustee Barry Coombes stepped down, having played an active role since the Trust's inception in 1976; Barry spoke of his pride at having been involved with the Trust for many years and expressed his confidence in the future generations to continue the legacy started by Brian.

    A video looking at the projects and organisations that the Trust has worked with was played to guests and can be viewed by clicking the link below:

  • BPCT supports the development of the Hamilton Gardens

    A $110,000 grant from the Brian Perry Charitable Trust has propelled the Hamilton Gardens development project to within $1m of its $7.033m fundraising target.

    Brian Perry Charitable Trust Chair Simon Perry says the trust is passionate about the Waikato and has supported the community for nearly four decades.

    “Hamilton Gardens are exceptional,” he says. “They are world class and we’re very proud to align ourselves with the next steps in the development of this iconic attraction.”

    The Trust will fund the construction of the Jade Dragon Theatre, which is the centrepiece of a destination playground at the Gardens. Up to 250 people will be able to view performances on the stage, which will be used for children’s shows and for other events at the Gardens, such as the Arts Festival.

    Mr Perry says supporting the Jade Dragon Theatre was the logical choice for the Trust, which has a focus on supporting youth.  He says the playground is a wonderful way to engage children and the accessibility and legacy of the playground is important to the Trust.

    “We see a lot of value in enhancing what is undoubtedly one of our region’s greatest assets,” Mr Perry says. “The Gardens development, the River Plan, the Te Awa River Ride – we firmly believe that continued development of attractions like these will add significant economic benefits to our region.”
