A legacy is a thoughtful way of leaving a gift to a charity In your will. However small, any legacy is gratefully received and can be written into your will at any time.
Your own solicitor can do this for you and you will know that you will be leaving a valuable gift to blind and partially sighted people after your death.
Please ask your solicitor to include the following details in your legacy:
Sight Support Ryedale
Charity Registration: 1170013
Why does Sight Support Ryedale need a gift in my will ?
Sight Support Ryedale is the only local charity, in the Ryedale area, delivering support services specifically for those who are blind or partially sighted. We receive no contract funding from national or local government and no monetary support from RNIB.
One of the most common forms of sight loss is Age Related Macular Degeneration. Ryedale is a popular retirement location therefore the demand for our support services is growing and will continue to increase due to our rural location and the reduction of local authority services. We need to ensure the continuation of those services on which our clients depend.
We are a self-funded charity which relies on grants and donations from individuals and grant making trusts. Legacies are a welcome source of income and your gift can make a huge difference to the lives of those who are living with sight loss by providing the support they need to continue to live full, active and independent lives.
Under the Gift Aid scheme, charities can reclaim an extra 25% in tax on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. Please contact us to find out more when you make a donation.
