Making a Will ensures your assets and possessions are left to those you love. You can also leave a gift to The Bevern Trust.
Remember A Charity Making a Will Week 10-16 September 2018, now in its ninth year, brings together charities, government and donors to highlight the importance of legacy giving. The campaign showcases the impact of legacy donations and calls on everyone to pass on something wonderful in their Will.
Making a Will is an important way of looking after the future of your family and friends. After you’ve taken care of loved ones, you may wish to leave a gift in your Will to your local disability charity – The Bevern Trust. Your legacy gift to The Bevern Trust can mean that more profoundly disabled people in East Sussex who don’t currently have access to our services, can do so, and live their lives to the full, with more freedom and opportunity.
DID YOU KNOW? 42% of over-55s don’t have a Will, according to a survey of 2,000 people. Research from Macmillan Cancer Support reveals that nearly 2 in 3 UK residents (63%) are not making out a Will and making their final wishes known. This includes 42% of people over the age of 55.*
Without an up-to-date Will, the law could overrule a person’s final wishes and leave possessions, money, property, and even dependent children, with someone they may not have chosen.
The reality is that so many of us put off updating or making a Will, despite official guidance recommending that people review their Will every five years and after any major life events. A quarter of Wills have not been updated for at least five years.
Making a Will is an important way of looking after the future of your family and friends. After you’ve taken care of loved ones, you may wish to leave a gift in your Will to your local disability charity – The Bevern Trust and help our work live on. Just enter ‘Bevern’ in the find a charity section.
Remember A Charity has teamed up with Co-op Legal Services, a national provider of Wills and other legal services, trusted for their strong ethical beliefs and socially responsible working. They can help you to decide which Will is right for you, help you to amend an existing one or even leave a gift to charity – especially during Remember a Charity Week 2018 from 10-16 September 2018.
Making a Will is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. And it’s a lot more affordable and straightforward than you think.
Remember a Charity always recommend speaking to your local professional advisor if you’re considering making out a Will or updating an existing one.
