World Land Trust (WLT) will be receiving more than £800 from clients of the Halesworth branch of QualitySolicitors Norton Peskett.
During Will Aid month in November, having instructed QualitySolicitors Norton Peskett to draw up a basic will, clients were invited to donate the usual fee for making a will either to WLT or to another local charity.
In the process, at least one of the clients pledged to leave a legacy to WLT.
“Thank you very much to the Halesworth branch of QualitySolicitors Norton Peskett and their clients,” said Anne Clifford, WLT’s Special Communications Officer. “This is the first time we have worked together to raise funds, and we are delighted with the results.”
In recent years, WLT legacy income has ranged from 0.5-3 per cent of total annual income, which is below the average UK charity income from legacies, which was 6 per cent in 2011.
“Data on conservation charities with comparable size and aims to WLT is not easy to source, but the UK average figures of 6 per cent indicates that there is potential to increase WLT’s current average level of legacy income,” said Anne, who is currently developing a legacy income strategy for the Trust.
We are always delighted to speak to supporters about possible legacies to World Land Trust. If you would like to find out more please contact Viv Burton on [email protected] or call the WLT offices on +44 (0) 1986 874422 or follow the links below.
