Writing your Will is never an easy task. Once you’ve remembered those close to you then making a gift to a charity that is close to your heart can help make things a little easier.
Remember a Charity in your Will Week is a great time to start thinking about how you would like to help.
Our supporter Nick Wilson has kindly pledged to leave us a gift in his Will. Here he explains why:
“I first got involved with the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (GWAAC) a few years ago when my employer selected them as their annual charity partner.
“Visiting their operational base and having the opportunity to chat with the Critical Care team, pilots and fundraising team inspired me to take an active role in raising funds for the charity.
“After raising several thousand pounds for GWAAC during the annual partnership I had built such a close bond that I didn’t want to take a step back from supporting them, and so I have continued to support them via a number of methods including fundraising at work, volunteering at events and participating in their weekly lottery.
“Earlier this year I needed to update my Will and I took the opportunity to give GWAAC my ongoing support by leaving them a legacy. Leaving a legacy to GWAAC was easy to do and my solicitor made the process so simple.
“After updating my Will I let GWAAC know that I had left them a legacy and they were immensely grateful. The trust and respect I have for GWAAC means that I know the money will be used to not only help cover their day to day running costs but also enhance the service that they provide.
“I’m proud to be leaving a legacy to GWAAC and would encourage others to do the same so that the charity can continue their lifesaving work.”
