The Central Lakes Trust region is defined
as the geographical area which the former Otago Central Electric
Power Board was authorised to supply electricity to.
The Trust provides a "helping hand" to organisations and groups which service a need in the community.
This need must be "charitable" (in its legal sense), which means an organisation or project must be related to welfare, education or religious activities, or have a purpose which is beneficial to the community.
