    Part A 1) At the time of his death Jim lived a reclusive life in his luxurious mansion, Ravendor, with his black cat, Tom. He was the majority shareholder of Lovegood Holdings Ltd, which produces the weekly magazine The Squiggler (edited by Anna). He had only one surviving child – his daughter, Jane.By his will Jim appointed Rita and Luna his executrices and then made just four dispositions as follows:

    (iii) “all my money on deposit at the Gottogrin Bank I leave to the Church of Hokey.”

    The Church of Hokey is a company limited by guarantee whose object is to publish and disseminate the writings of Bathilda Babbling, who advocated transcendental meditation to release inner strength and build personal resilience. The company is heavily indebted to a firm of printers and is not economically active, but it remains on the register of companies. Advise Jane and Anna as to whether Xenophilius’ testamentary dispositions are valid and charitable.

    How would I go about answering this? I'm assuming I need to talk about the issue of religion too?
