Leaving a legacy gift in your Will can help us to change a child’s life. It's a really good way to make a truly life-changing difference for future generations of children by helping to ensure they get the care and support they really need.
This is given as a percentage or share of your estate once all specific gifts, debts and expenses have been met. A residuary gift is particularly valuable because it maintains ‘real value’ in line with the rate of inflation. It’s a popular way to leave a legacy gift because it ensures your loved ones are taken care of and you don’t need to keep changing your Will as circumstances change.
This is a bequest of particular items or assets that are not in the form of money. This could be property, shares, works of art or other valuable items.
A gift for a specified sum of money (e.g. £5,000). As inflation rises and living costs increase, monetary gifts are subject to lose value and therefore you may wish to update this gift periodically or consult your solicitor on ways to protect the value of a gift of this kind.
We strongly advise that you consult a solicitor when making your Will, but we can provide a copy of our ‘suggested wording’ for guidance on how to include a gift.
If you have already made your Will, the easiest way to include a gift is to use a Codicil Form. Then all you have to do is return it to your solicitor for it to be added to your Will.
The safespace is a good place for Emily to retreat to when things get a bit overwhelming. She takes herself off to it and chills out for a while, until she is ready to be around people again.
When the chair was delivered Laina was left alone to get accustomed to the chair. After some time of being very quiet, her grandad went to see if she was alright and he found she had raised herself up and was looking in all the wall cupboards in the kitchen as she had never been able to reach them before. The chair has given Laina increased independence. Allowed her to join her sister and friends in the kitchen to bake as she can now reach the higher surface heights. She will be allowed to take the chair into her new secondary school in September.
I was very happy when Newlife said they would fund this fantastic wheelchair, it means I am nearly as tall as my friends, and the chair looks very cool and colourful. I would like to say a big "Thank you" to everyone who donates to the charity because it means so much to children like me who can't walk. I feel when people look at me it's not because I am disabled but because I look so cool and independant.
