Making Memories… Giving Hope

Leave a gift in your Will

Leave a gift in your Will

After you've taken care of your loved ones, would you consider leaving a gift in your Will to CHICKS so that we can continue to provide free respite breaks for children who may never otherwise experience the carefree joys many of us remember? No matter how big or small, leaving a gift in your Will will make a real difference to a child's life; giving them some happy childhood memories and the chance to just be children.

How to leave a gift in your Will

How you leave a gift in your Will is completely up to you. You can leave a percentage of your estate (1% or more), a specific cash sum or even a specific item such as a car or piece of jewellery.

Talk to your solicitor further about making a Will. If you would like to leave a gift to CHICKS, all you will need to do is provide your solicitor with CHICKS' registered address and charity number:

Suite B1 Higher Mill
Buckfast Abbey
TQ11 0EE

Registered Charity in England & Wales (1080953) and in Scotland (SCO40536)

Make changes to an existing Will

If you already have a Will, but would like to add a gift to CHICKS then you will need to make a Codicil. A Codicil is a legal amendment to a Will for minor changes, such as adding or increasing a gift to a charity. Like a Will, a Codicil needs to be signed and witnessed. Your solicitor will be able to send you a Codicil form.
