Since 1888 legacies have been a vital source of income for Halifax Society for the Blind, funding vital services to local people with sight loss.
It’s an ongoing challenge for volunteers and staff to raise funds to meet the cost of the ongoing services we provide to hundreds of people across the district. Any development of our service, major refurbishment or purchase of capital items has often only been met following the receipt of a legacy. Therefore, you can be sure that any legacy left to the society will make a big impact.
A gift in your will no matter how small, will help secure the future of Halifax Society for the Blind for future generations of local people affected by sight loss.
It is natural that in making a will we want to ensure our family are provided for and people are often worried that in leaving a bequest to charity family will lose out. In these circumstances some people have left us what is called a residuary bequest, this means that the charity only benefits once legacies to family and friends have been made.
Please mention Halifax Society for the Blind CIO (Registered charity 1197353 ) to your solicitor when making or changing your will. It’s important to quote the charity number to ensure that there’s no confusion and the society will benefit from your kindness. Whilst we cannot recommend a particular solicitor, we can provide you with a list of solicitors in Calderdale compiled by the Law Society.
If you would like further information regarding leaving a gift in your will, or would just like some general advice or a confidential chat, please just call us on 01422 352383 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope that you will leave a bequest to Halifax Society for the Blind and would like to take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of the many people who will benefit from your generosity.
