Leave a legacy

Our charity has survived and contintued to protect the local countryside thanks to the generous legacies of our founders and their friends. Please help us to carry on being a strong force for good in the countryside by leaving a donation in your will.


Your legacy doesn't have to be a big gift. We receive many gifts of between £200 and £5,000, as well as larger ones of £15,000 and £25,000. Every donation is used to help protect our wonderful local countryside. 


Please remember us in your will

You can give to us in two ways, either by a lump sum (pecuniary legacy) or by a percentage (residuary legacy) of your estate.

We are a registered charity, so any type of legacy is free of inheritance tax.

We’ve revised and printed our Legacy Giving brochure which explains why legacies are important to us, and articulates how to leave a gift to us in your will. A printed version of the brochure is available from the office (call us on 0114 279 2655) or download it here. Thank you.
