Imagine a world without your favourite charities and all of the good work that they do … Did you know that a gift left in your will leaves a lasting legacy? Without these legacies our impact would not be as far-reaching and we would struggle to continue our work. That’s why we are working together as the Include a Charity campaign.
Most of our income comes from the generosity of the general community – whether it is through donations, taking part in our events or supporting those who raise money on our behalf. It is a little known fact however that much of our vital income comes from those who leave us a gift in their will. You don’t need to wealthy to leave a gift in your will – no matter what size the gift it helps the work live on.
This Include a Charity Week is taking place from 7-13 September and we are asking the community to consider, when the time is right, and you have taken care of your family and friends, to leave a gift in their will that will have a lasting impact and help our work live on.
