Leave a Gift in your Will
A legacy costs nothing now but can make the world of difference in the future.
Many charitable services would not exist without money left in wills. Yet only 5% of people actually provide for them in this way.
The tragedy is that while the number of people making charitable wills remains low, the number of people relying on them continues to increase. The result is that funds available from legacies are split between ever more charities.
Making a will not only helps your favoured causes but relieves family and friends of many of the legal difficulties that can be encountered without one.
Each October a scheme is run where people can make a will free of charge. For more information about this visit www.freewillsmonth.org.uk.

Letter of Wishes
A letter of wishes is not a legal document and, unlike a will, it does not automatically become publicly accessible after your death. This document is a letter addressed to your executors and expresses your wishes. In many cases a letter of wishes will become the most important practical tool to assist the executors and trustees in reaching early decisions, and for managing family fortunes.
Sometimes a letter of wishes is used to express the testator’s view, or to explain their actions and decisions.
We have compiled a Jargon Buster explaining some of the most common terms used:
We have also put together some simple background information on Inheritance Tax:
