Early in 2011 we received an email from a solicitor in the United States advising us that The Children’s Society had been left a gift of $25,000 in the Will of his client, Eric. After further correspondence, we found out that Eric had left this very special gift to support our work as he himself had been in the care of The Children’s Society and wanted to ensure he helped children in some way. 

Without the generosity of supporters like Eric who remember our work in their Will, we would not be able to help the 48,000 children a year who rely on our support.

If you’d like to consider giving in this special way and would like to receive a copy of our free Will Writing Guide or attend a legacy event, please contact Supporter Care on 0300 303 7000 or email supportercare@childrenssociety.org.uk.
