From our Chair

A big focus for Hugo this year has been on housing, with significant donations to Mission Home Ground in Auckland, The St Vincent de Paul Pavitt Street Housing Project in Christchurch, and Hawthorndale Care Village in Invercargill. The Hugo House at Lake Hayes continues to be popular with many families and groups enjoying a holiday in Central Otago…



Maryanne Green established the Hugo Charitable Trust in 2017 to continue the legacy of helping others started by her father, Hugh Green. Hugh Green’s aim was to assist poor people in social and medical areas; to give back to the people of New Zealand but never forgetting where he came from.
