Remember us in your will

 

Please consider remembering Life Education Wessex & Thames Valley in your will and help us to continue our work helping to keep young children happy, healthy and safe.


Donating through your Will is a great way to give. A legacy does not get taxed so every penny comes straight to the charity. It can also reduce inheritance tax because the taxable value of your estate is calculated after charitable bequests are made.


There are three main ways that you can leave us a gift in your will:

  • A specific named item, for example a piece of jewellery

  • A fixed amount – known as a pecuniary gift. Please remember that the value of this gift will decrease over the years due to increases in the cost of living

  • A residuary gift – this will be paid out once your family and friends, together with any taxes and costs relating to your estate, have been taken care of

Please ensure that you specify that you are leaving your gift to ‘Life Education Wessex, Registered Charity Number 1071094 ’.


To find out more about leaving a gift, please speak to your solicitor.

 
Become an Ambassador

 

Ambassadors are our eyes, ears and supporters on the ground, they are people with a keen interest in helping their local schools and communities recognise the need for Life Education and embrace and promote it as a service that can help to prevent a community problem.


There is a recognised need for Life Education and it is an excellent resource for schools, but few people know that we are a charity.  Ambassadors can help us to spread the word about what we do and how it can benefit local children and the wider community and raise funds to help us deliver the service.
