This week (10 September – 16 September 2018) is Remember a Charity in your Will Week. Remember a Charity is a group of 200 charities aiming to encourage more people to remember a charity in their Will. 

This is an important campaign as it is estimated that around £2.8 billion of donations to charities come from legacy donations. Without this, many charities would not be able to survive and continue the important work that they do. Legacies can be any size and will still make a huge difference to a charity.

It is important to keep your Will under regular review to ensure it accurately reflects your wishes. A review should be completed at least every five years or sooner if you have a change in circumstance.
