Leave a gift in your Will

Hare c. David Tipling/2020Vision

Protect the wildlife and wild places you love, for tomorrow and for ever.

Imagine leaving a gift that could truly last for generations, a gift that means your generosity can allow others to enjoy wildlife and wild places for the future - just like you do now.

However large or small, your gift will make a real difference to our region’s wildlife.

I’m sure that, like me, you’re concerned about the future of our planet. You too share a belief that it is important that we leave a thriving natural world for future generations to know and enjoy. That is why making a Will is one of the most important jobs any of us has to do.
Sir David Attenborough

Make a difference

Last year, almost 10% of individual giving income came directly from people like you choosing to leave a gift in their Will.

These gifts are essential if we’re to continue:

looking after our nature reserves;

protecting the region’s most endangered habitats and species;

campaigning for greater protection of local wildlife;

and inspiring the next generation of wildlife lovers.

Once you have provided for your loved ones,please consider including a gift to Cheshire Wildlife Trust in your Will. No matter how big or small, you can be sure it will make a difference to Cheshire’s wildlife.

Whatever your reason for giving, every single gift provides vital support for our most precious wildlife in these challenging times. Your gift will really make a positive impact and a lasting difference to the local wildlife and wild place you love so much. What’s more, leaving a gift in your Will won’t cost you a penny now and can even save tax on what you leave.

Philip's story

Member and Trustee, Philip loves nature. By deciding to leave a gift to the Trust in his Will, he is ensuring that the wildlife that’s so important to him will be protected long into the future.

I decided to leave a gift to Cheshire Wildlife Trust in my Will because wildlife needs all the help it can get and the Trust is the ‘go to’ organisation for wildlife protection in this area. They are the people who know most about Cheshire’s wildlife and how to protect it. I see how hard people at the Trust work and how hard it is to fund this work. It’s easy to take it for granted but it all costs money. Being able to make a lasting contribution to all of that is great.

Bernard's story

We are most grateful to former longstanding member Bernard Dann (1924 – 2018) who very kindly included a gift to the Trust in his Will. Moving to Caldy in the 1970s, Bernard and his wife Ruth were very active members of local group Wirral Wildlife.  Bernard supported Ruth in her fundraising activities and was always very hospitable, opening up their house and garden for meetings and fundraisers.  In the words of local group representative and friend, Barbara Greenwood, ‘Bernard was an amazing man who supported the Trust as a committed member and dedicated volunteer’
