Remember a Charity Week launches
Remember a Charity has launched its annual awareness campaign this week, aiming to encourage people to think about leaving a charitable gift in their will.
At present, 190 charities are working together as part of the Remember a Charity campaign, all with the hope that this year will further encourage the normalisation of charitable gifts being made in wills.
Running from the 11-17 of September, this year’s campaign also features its own legacy radio channel, with the intention of inspiring more people to recognise the benefit of leaving money to charity when consolidating their final wishes.
Aiming to appeal to the baby-boomer generation, Last Pirate FM will be travelling throughout Britain this week, interviewing a number of charities and celebrities on the subject of legacy donations and encouraging people to consider leaving a gift in their will.
Rob Cope, Director of Remember A Charity said: “Gifts in Wills are the lifeblood of so many vital services that are provided by charities all over the UK.
‘’We hope this Remember A Charity Week will encourage even more people to consider how they can have their say on the world they want to pass on. If everyone left just a small amount to good causes, once they’ve taken care of loved ones, it could make an enormous difference for future generations.
“Solicitors play a crucial role in helping their clients including everything they care about in their Will, including family, friends and their favourite charities.”
Remember a Charity also have a Supporter scheme providing professionals with the opportunity to show their support for the campaign.
