Baby Goldfinch in WRAS' care
Baby Goldfinch in WRAS' care

Legacies are a major source of funding for charities in the UK. Most charities are only able to expand their services when they receive funds from a generous legacy.

Please include East Sussex WRAS in your Will by clearly stating our official title “East Sussex WRAS” and including our registered charity number 1108880.

It is very important to make sure your Will is legal. We recommend you seek help from a specialist legal advisor.

A number of people told us they were leaving us a legacy. There have been, however, a few unfortunate occasions when WRAS did not receive any funds because the Will was not legal. For example, the Will had not been signed or witnessed, or written correctly. Executors must be appointed who are responsible for carrying out your wishes as stated in your Will. Executors may be family members, friends, your solicitor or accountant, or even a member of your chosen charity. Please make sure your Will is signed and witnessed. If you are unsure about what to do, seek professional advice from an independent specialist legal advisor.

Please consider whether you want to leave a Pecuniary Gift (a specified sum of money), a Residuary Gift (a portion of or all of your remaining estate after all expenses have been met), or a Specific Gift (for example, a car, property, jewellery), or a combination of them.

Please download and complete the WRAS Legacy Pledge Form if you are including WRAS in your Will.

In advance, thank you very much.
