Remember A Charity Week – pass on something wonderful

The Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust will be collaborating with Remember a Charity Week, 9 – 15 September.  Remember A Charity Week brings together over 200 charities to encourage everyone to consider leaving a gift to charity in their Will.

Everyone should write a will. It is the only way to ensure that what you leave behind when you die reflects what you valued most in life; the people, places and causes you really care about.

You will want to make sure that your loved ones are provided for after you have gone and by including the Sheffield & Rotherham Wildlife Trust in your will, however big or small, you will also leave them with the gift of nature too. Protecting and preserving nature and wildlife locally for future generations

This September, Remember A Charity will celebrate its 10th Remember A Charity Week, stepping back in time with a 70’s theme to help challenge common misconceptions around legacy giving.

Remember hiding behind the sofa at the sight of Daleks? Or wondering who shot JR? Then you’ll love the Remember A Charity Week 70s-inspired ‘points of view’ show. Created by comedian Matt Berry, the show is a tongue-in-cheek play on classic TV from the 70’s. In the show, you’ll see why a gift in your Will needn’t be a conundrum. In fact, it’s something anyone could do and even a small gift can make a huge impact. Watch the full episode now.

Gifts in Wills provide invaluable income for the Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust, for example When Joan Hoare died, she remembered the Trust with a generous legacy in her will, which was used to establish and maintain new wildflower meadows on our Centenary Riverside nature reserve.
