Legacies

 

Making a Will is easy and can give peace of mind to your family and friends by making them aware of your wishes.

All gifts and legacies left to registered charities are free from Inheritance and Capital Gains Tax. You can help others – and save tax – by leaving a lasting legacy to the Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance Trust.

Many find leaving a legacy to a worthwhile cause as a wonderful way of celebrating their life by creating a better future for all those who may need the life-saving skills of the air ambulance.

Your support really can make a difference. It is a wonderful opportunity to do something positive in your lifetime to make an an invaluable contribution to our work in the future.

At the charity we understand that we only receive this special donation because of someone's loss. We do understand and endeavour to deal with these sorts of donations and the families making them with sensitivity, care and compassion.

There are several ways you can support your air ambulance in your Will:

Pecuniary Gift

You can gift the charity a fixed sum of money.

Residual Gift

After making provision for your family and friends, you leave a proportion of your estate to the Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance Trust.

A Gift in Kind

Bequeath a gift of property, shares, jewellery or any other items you may wish to leave to our charity.

Family Flowers Only

Ask mourners to make a donation to the Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance Trust in lieu of flowers.

What next?

We recommend that you visit a solicitor to make your Will or amend your existing Will. If you simply want to add on a legacy, this could be done by drawing up a Codicil, which is then kept with the original copy of your Will. Your Solicitor will request the following information from you:
