the name under which the trustees are incorporated as a Board under the Charitable Trusts Act 1957 if the trustees are incorporated as a Board under that Act; or


the name of the trust; or


a name nominated by the trustees of the trust if the trust does not otherwise have a name.


The registration of the trustees of a trust as a charitable entity is not affected by—

the appointment of new trustees of the trust.
