Every September, more than 180 charities join forces to hold the annual Remember A Charity Week. The awareness week aims to raise the profile of legacy giving and encourage the public to consider leaving a gift in their Will.

Remember A Charity Week will run from 11-17 September and we will be calling on the public to #HaveYourSay on the world you want to pass on and hopefully inspire potential supporters to leave a legacy.

Last year The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales received two legacies from people like you choosing to leave a gift in their Will to wildlife. These gifts help support our vital conservation work, from ensuring the Puffin population on Skomer and Skokholm Islands continues to increase, to researching Dolphin communication at our Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre. Gifts in Wills have helped us maintain our 90 nature reserves, they have enabled us to purchase land and provide the right habitat for local wildlife that is struggling to survive in today's urban jungles.

Leaving a gift in your Will to help local wildlife can be very beneficial to you and your family; adding a gift in your Will offers each of us the opportunity to contribute to good causes in a way that may not be possible during our life time, due to financial responsibilities.

The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales understand that your loved ones come first and it is only after they have been provided for that we ask that you think of us. Please give us a call for an informal chat, or alternatively you can request a free booklet which will provide you with information about how we have used previous wills, our promise to you and how you can go about leaving a gift in your Will to The Wildlife Trust. Just contact WTSWW's legacy officer, Rebecca Vincent via r.vincent@welshwildlife.org.

We are also planning a legacy event which will give people information about leaving us a legacy and tell you about some of our work, both past, present and our future hopes. If you would like to show an interest in this event and be kept up to date with it's developments (date, time and location) please let Rebecca know on the email address above.
