The McClelland Trust

Robert McClelland of Southbridge, Canterbury, died on 5 February 1955 and under his Will he established a Trust in perpetuity to apply the income in each year towards research into the causes of and cure of cancer.

The Trust Board to administer the income from the Trust currently consists of a representative of Public Trust, the Mayor of Selwyn District Council and a Medical Advisor on behalf of the Canterbury District Health Board.

The funding may be used to support several separate projects or, in exceptional circumstances, the total amount may be allocated to one specific project.
