Donations and Legacies

Follow in Richard Watts’ footsteps

Leaving a gift is a genuine way of showing your appreciation to the Charities and will help us to support others. Making a Will is your guarantee that your wishes will be carried out. Anyone can make a Will, or update an existing Will. We recommend you use the services of a solicitor for this.

There are different types of gift you can leave and the following are the most common:

 

Pecuniary Legacy: This is a set sum of money which can be left to either individuals or charities. 

 

Residuary Legacy: This is what is left of your estate once all other monies have been paid out.

 

Specific Legacy: This is a particular item or specific property that you can leave to an individual or charity.

 

Alternatively, if you would prefer to make a gift now, it would be gratefully received.  In addition, if you are a tax payer, you can request a Gift Aid form to complete in order for us to reclaim the tax you have paid on the value of your donation.

 

For more information please call Jane Rose, Chief Officer on 01634 842194.
