How does your gift help hens?
You can help us to help caged hens by leaving a gift in your Will. We make every penny we receive work for the benefit of these humble creatures through our positive campaigns and our educational work. You can read about those who have already decided to leave a gift in their Will here.
Your Will, your wishes
Making a Will is the only way to make sure your wishes are carried out after you’re gone. Naturally, you will want to think about your loved ones first however then you may like to consider leaving a gift to the charity or charities that mean the most to you. We strongly recommend that you seek advice from a professional Will writer such as a solicitor.
There are 3 types of legacy gift:
- 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.
- A pecuniary legacy is the gift of a particular sum of money.
- A specific request is the gift of a particular item (a piece of jewellery, for example).
You can use the following wording as either part of a new Will 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. Remember to keep your Will up to date – if you marry, divorce, separate or are widowed, you will need to alter it.
