Remember the Rainy Day Trust in your Will
You can remember the charity, without incurring any immediate outlay to yourself, by leaving a legacy to the trust in your Will.
The importance of making a Will
Making a Will is the only way to ensure that your affairs are handled properly after death. It is simple to do, relatively inexpensive, doesn’t take long and will shield your dependants and loved ones from complex legal procedures after your death.
