This year, Remember a Charity Week is being held 12th – 18th September. Legacies are vital to our very survival, a fact that most of our supporters don’t realise. To raise some much needed awareness, we’ve joined forces with Remember A Charity, the largest consortium of its kind in the UK working to promote legacy giving.
We have been fortunate enough to have been remembered in people’s wills in previous years, by those who have felt moved by the work Cyril Flint Befrienders does in the local community to combat loneliness. We wanted to raise awareness of how much we appreciate this generosity and how important on-going financial support is to keep the charity running.
With 35%* of people saying they would consider including a gift to charity after providing for their family and friends in their will, and only 7%* doing so, there is huge potential to increase income from legacies. We are proud to be working with Remember A Charity to make this a reality.
As part of our membership we have linked with Co-operative Legal Services who have agreed to complete a single standard will for anyone leaving a gift to Cyril Flint Volunteers for just £99 (plus VAT), inclusive of a £30 discount. The Co-Operative Legal team can take instructions over the telephone, so you can sort your will with ease from the comfort of your own home.
