Leaving a gift in your Will nowwill enable
us to plan ahead for the future, to make
sure we can do our best for all the
commercial laying hens of the future.
Making a Will is the only way you can be
sure that the money you leave benefits the
people and causes that really matter to you.
Remember, too, that money you leave to
a charity is not taxable; it’s one of the few
times you are able to beat the taxman!
There are 3 types of legacy gift:
• A pecuniary legacy is the gift of a particular
sum of money.
• A specific request is the gift of particular
item (a piece of jewellery, for example).
• A residual legacy is where the gift is all
(or part) of the value of your estate, after
expenses and other legacies have been paid.
You can use the following wording as either
part of a newWill or as a Codicil to an
existing one:
I give to the “British Hen Welfare Trust”
registered charity number 1147356, whose
head office is or was Hope Chapel, Rose Ash,
South Molton, Devon EX36 4RF. (WHAT YOU
WANT TO GIVE) absolutely free of taxes and
I declare that the receipt of the treasurer of
the said ” British Hen Welfare Trust” shall be
sufficient discharge to my Executors.
It is very important that the name of the
charity; British Hen Welfare Trust and the
charity number 1147356, are clearly shown,
and keep your Will up to date too, that way
you can also make a difference to our
beloved hens long after you are able to help
them yourself.
Leaving a gift
in your Will
Andrea McPhillips
“I have decided to leave a legacy gift to the
BHWT in my Will. I’ve volunteered for the
charity for many years now so I’ve seen the
good work that they do and I know what efforts
they put in to use every penny wisely. Small
growing charities like the British Hen Welfare
Trust often lose out to larger, higher profile ones.
A legacy however small is really important to
help safeguard the future of the charity and its
wonderful work.” Andrea McPhillips
