The Toc H NZ – Bowerbank Charitable Trust was established by a Deed in March 1992. The Settlor is an autonomous body established in New Zealand to promote and act in accordance with the ideals of TOC H Incorporated in the United Kingdom by Royal Charter in 1969. Its affairs in New Zealand are conducted by three National Officers:
1. The Honorary Commissioner.
2. The Chairman.
3. The Honorary Treasurer.
The Settlor received assets from the Estate of Lady Bowerbank, originally derived from Sir Frederick Bowerbank (the first Honorary Commissioner of Toc H in New Zealand), and used those assets to establish this Trust in New Zealand.
