The Hutt Mana Charitable Trust is looking for big ideas. A new round of applications for the trust s community grants has been announced by chair Ian Hutchings. Mr Hutchings said there had been a steady increase in applications for grants, with a trend towards smaller grants being noticed. In this round, which is additional to the normal schedule of applications, the trust welcomes applications to fund larger and more significant projects that offer substantial benefits across the local community, Mr Hutchings said. While this presents a challenge, the trustees think it appropriate to constantly look for ways that the trust s limited funding can best serve the community, Mr Hutchings said. He said that a regional distri- bution of grant funds will continue across the areas the trust serves -- Lower Hutt, Upper Hutt, Porirua and part of Wellington. Grant applications are sought twice a year, and close with the secretary, Kendons Chartered Accountants, Box 31250, Lower Hutt, on August 26.

Celebrant Glenda Barratt who spoke at her funeral at Kingswood on Wednesday, said Mrs O Byrne, nee Reddan, was born in Oamaru in September 1937.

In 1961 he was posted to Fiji, followed by Auckland and Wellington. After the move to Wellington they bought a home in Stephen St, Upper Hutt. Mrs O Byrne found work in the TAB and Trentham manual phone exchange before the family moved to the United States when Mr O Byrne was posted to Washington DC for four years. There, Mrs O Byrne was active in the Red Cross. On their return to New Zealand Mr O Byrne was posted to Wood- bourne and back to Wellington in 1977 and the family returned to their Upper Hutt house.

Her lifelong love of animals came to the fore through her involvement in the Upper Hutt SPCA and she was appointed to an animal ethics committee at Victoria University. She worked at the IBM call cen- tre in Petone until last year. She had a long battle with ill health but never complained and rarely told anyone about the treatments she was having. Son Bill Junior said his mother grew up in the Depression and World War II and did immense unpaid community work, especially for the SPCA in Upper Hutt.
