Help us to protect wildlife for future generations

Sheffield and Rotherham rich in wildlife, with healthy rivers, species rich wildflower meadows bursting with birdsong - what better gift could we leave to future generations?

You will want to make sure that your loved ones are provided for after you've gone and the best way to do that is to ensure you have made your wishes clear in your will, but you can leave them a gift of nature too! By leaving a gift to Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust in your will, you can help to make sure that the trees, rivers and meadows of Sheffield and Rotherham have a bright future too!

A Will for Wildlife

Everyone should write a Will; it is the only way to ensure that what you leave behind when you die is distributed according to your wishes.Your will enables you to plan ahead for the people, places and causes you care about. Making a Will leaves matters simple and straightforward for your family.

And yet many people have not considered making their wishes clear in this way. We are told that less than 50% of people at age 40 have written a will.

You should discuss making the Will with a solicitor, to ensure that your wishes are legally and correctly expressed and avoid your family suffering delays and anguish at a time when they least need it. Most solicitors have a legacies expert and there are times in the year, such as Remember a Charity Week in September, when discounts are offered.

Legacies to Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust are free from Inheritance Tax.

The contents of your Will are confidential, however if you would like to leave us land or wish us to use your gift in a certain way please contact us first so that we can ensure that we will be able to fulfil your wishes.

If you would like to discuss leaving a legacy to the Trust, or to ask any questions you may have, please contact Chris Grice on 0114 2634335 to write to us at:

Co-operative Legal Services offer a professional, convenient and easy to use Will Writing Service over the telephone and offer a discounted rate for a basic single will of £100 plus VAT to Wildlife Trust members.

They are open 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday and 9pm to 1pm on Saturdays.

The initial conversation is free and will take about 10 minutes. Co-operative Legal Services will explain how a will protects you, your loved ones and your estate and will discuss the option of leaving a gift to charity. If you wish to write your will with them, they will agree a convenient time for a will writing specialist to contact you to take your instructions over the telephone from the comfort of your home. This will take about 45 minutes. They will also store the completed will for free until it is needed.

To take up the Co-operative Legal Services offer, telephone 0844 252 9965 and quote RACWILLS01.

There is no obligation in either case to leave a gift to the Trust in your will, but any gift would make a difference.
