The Theodore and Isabella Wearne Charitable Trust
Theodore Wearne (1878 to 1969) expressed sympathy for the plight of the aged, orphaned and/or poor children, and people in need, living in Western Australia. In 1960, at the age of 82, and to celebrate his golden wedding anniversary in Perth, Theodore Wearne gifted A£100,000 to set up The Theodore and Isabella Wearne Charitable Trust Incorporated (The Trust) in his native state of Western Australia. The Trust was incorporated in Western Australia on 29 December 1960 and registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission on 3 December 2012.
In accord with the wishes of the Founders, the Board of the Trust supports, at its sole discretion, a range of charitable purposes in the State of Western Australia. These include the advancement, relief or benefit of aged persons, children in need and other members of the community.
