This September, World Land Trust (WLT) is proudly supporting the fifth annual Remember A Charity Week. Running from 8 –14 September 2014, the week aims to inspire people to think about leaving a charitable gift in their will.

As part of the week, a wing walker, an Ironwoman and a high diver with a combined age of 245, have come together to star in a special documentary titled Living Legends.

The documentary sees the three inspirational grandparents share their remarkable stories to remind the nation that there’s a legend in all of us. Among them is Tom Lackey who wing walks to raise funds for charity – at the age of 94!

The film concludes with the message that, irrespective of age, anyone can become a living legend by including a charity they care about in their will.

John Burton, WLT Chief Executive, said: “Every legacy that World Land Trust receives, whether large or small, will help safeguard the world’s remaining wilderness areas in perpetuity. During Remember a Charity week we take the opportunity to thank supporters who have told us that they have named the Trust as a beneficiary in their will. We also encourage all our regular donors to consider leaving a legacy to the Trust.”

Rob Cope, Director at Remember A Charity said: “Remember A Charity Week 2014 aims to remind the nation that there is a legend in us all. After taking care of your family and friends, leaving a gift in will to your favourite charity is truly a legendary thing to do. No matter the size, a charitable gift can help the invaluable work of our favourite causes live on – long after we’re gone.”
