Legacies can play a part in securing the future of wildlife across our county.
That's why, this week, we're asking people to remember Sussex Wildlife Trust when making a will to coincide with Remember A Charity Week (11th-17th September).
More than 150 charities from around the UK, including The Wildlife Trusts, come together during the week to encourage more people to consider leaving a gift to charity when writing a will.
Each year our work to protect and create wildlife-rich areas is given a tremendous boost through legacies. These generous gifts can mean the difference between saving a wildlife haven and losing it forever.
Gifts that are left in wills are an important source of income for us here at the Sussex Wildlife Trust as it helps us to take a long term approach to our planning and strategic investment. These important gifts help us to buy and protect important wildlife sites, manage our existing nature reserves and better connect them with the wider landscape, inspire young people to value the wonders of nature and to speak up for wildlife to minimise the effects of planning development on our natural heritage.
Any size donation can make a real difference, whether it is enough to buy land, or simply to support our work. By leaving a gift in your will for Sussex Wildlife Trust, we can direct funds where they are needed most.
