Executors of the estate of Jane Pointer have confirmed that World Land Trust (WLT) has been named as a major beneficiary in Miss Pointer’s will. The Trust will receive assets valued in excess of £500,000.

Miss Pointer first became a supporter of World Land Trust in 1991 when she joined a trip to Belize led by John Burton, WLT Chief Executive.

In 1999, determined to permanently protect her own piece of wilderness in the Cotswolds, Miss Pointer donated Kites Hill in Gloucestershire to the Trust. Thanks to this living legacy, she was able to watch Kites Hill being transformed into a wonderful nature reserve.

“Jane Pointer has been a dedicated supporter of World Land Trust, both in life and death. We are very grateful to her, and we will make sure that her name and memory live on,” said John.

Miss Pointer died on 26 January 2014 after a short illness.
