Remember A Charity Week
After taking care of loved ones, consider a charity in your Will and see how a piece of paper can do truly amazing things.
Most of bibic's income comes from the generosity of people like you, whether it’s through collection boxes, shops or taking part in our events. But it’s a little known fact that our most vital income actually comes from people leaving gifts in Wills.
For instance, last year gifts in wills enabled our therapy team to work directly with over 200 children and their families, helping them to laugh, to play, to smile, walk, learn and for some even to say their first words.
Thousands of children in the UK have a brain related condition but are unaware of the life-changing support we can provide. Next year, with the help of legacy contributions we hope to expand our team of therapists, to reach out to new areas of the country and ensure that we reach more of the children and families who desperately need our support.
That’s why, as a member of the Remember A Charity consortium, we are taking part in Remember A Charity Week to help raise awareness of the importance of gifts left in Wills.
It’s a common myth that you have to be wealthy to leave a gift in your Will to help us, but nothing could be further from the truth. After taking care of family and friends, you’ll be amazed at what one final gift, no matter how big or small, can do.
Whatever the amount we’re extremely grateful for any gift that’s been left to us, as it will help us to continue to transform the lives of children who have a brain-related condition.
Of course, we don’t expect you to update your Will right now. Instead, we only ask that you consider making room for charity in your Will.
