The Harry Ell Summit Road Memorial Trust was formed in 2002 to further the aims of the Summit Road Society by creating a fund to enable the purchase of further land on the Port Hills and to carry out ongoing maintenance of tracks and other facilities. It was registered as a charity in June 2008 (Registration number CC27183).
Despite the fact that significant amount of land on the Port Hills is owned by the City Council, Department of Conservation and trusts such as the Summit Road Society we believe that we cannot afford to be complacent and must continue to look at any opportunity to protect more land for public use and conservation.
If you value the unique landscape, ecological and recreational values of the Port Hills please consider a donation to the Trust, or granting a bequest in your will.
