A number of organisations are trying to figure out what to do with donations made by Sir Ron Brierley.

The 83-year-old former business high flyer pleaded guilty in Sydney last month to three charges of possessing child sex abuse material.

Herald senior reporter David Fisher says Cricket Wellington is one of the organisations working out what to do with the money.

He says some people think of the donations as tainted, while others believe his convictions shouldn’t detract from the good he has done in his past.

He says Wellington College and Cricket Wellington removed signage celebrating their links to the multi-millionaire, immediately after his guilty pleas.

Meanwhile, the Prime Minister's asked for the process to strip Brierley of his knighthood, to begin.
