Remember a Charity

Whilst three quarters of us support a charity during our lifetime, only 7% of us leave a legacy to a charity in our Will, even a small one.  Remember a Charity encourages us to leave money to those charities that we have supported through our lifetime and perhaps those that have supported us.  For more information, go to their website at www.rememberacharity.org.uk
