What do Legacies Fund

Legacies help us provide beds, specialist nurses and equipment and to extend our recreational programme to benefit all our Veterans. Independence is precious to the people we care for and your gift can help us purchase physiotherapy equipment which allows greater access to mobility. It also helps pay for our Activity Centre, which helps support younger Veterans by offering them companionship and the opportunity to learn new skills. 83p of every pound is spent directly on helping over 1000 Veterans every year.

Lots of people ask us if they need to tell us that they have left a gift in their Will. The answer is of course no, but we would love it if you did tell us, so we are able to thank you appropriately and give you a much more personal experience with Erskine.

Our Legacy Promise

  • We absolutely recognise that those closest to you come first in your Will
  • We will never ask you the size or type of gift if you decide to support our work this way by leaving us a gift in your Will
  • We will never ask you to tell us your intentions, but if you decide to tell us we can say “Thank you”
  • We fully understand that you may change your Will and decide not to leave us a gift, and that is your right to do so
  • We promise to use your gift wisely and for the benefit of our Veterans

 

Free Will writing for Erskine Supporters

There are a number of ways to write a Will that includes a gift to Erskine. Erskine have teamed up with two specialist Will writing providers to offer you free, no obligation Will writing.

Using the free Will writing service does not obligate you to leave a gift to Erskine. Your Will is yours and you are free to leave your estate to whoever you wish to benefit.

Being prepared means your family aren’t left unsure of your wishes after you have gone. Your Will provides them with your last wishes and ensures they are taken care of.

Remembering Erskine in your Will also shows everyone the charity which was so special to you.

Free Wills Network is an agency who put you in touch with local solicitors to write your Will if you prefer to meet with someone face to face.

Erskine’s membership of the Free Wills Network enables you to write your Will with a local solicitor, with Erskine paying a discounted rate for the writing of a simple Will. We sincerely hope that anyone who takes advantage of this special offer would consider leaving a gift to Erskine, but you are under no obligation to do so.
