Leave a Legacy

The needs of your loved ones must come first when making a Will. We understand that and encourage you to meet all personal requirements before considering a gift to The Avalon Group. Once this is arranged you can make a huge difference to the lives of people in your community by making a gift to our organisation.

Leaving a gift to The Avalon Group in your Will

Either by making or amending your Will to include a gift to The Avalon Group you are performing one of the kindest gestures you could make. The process needn’t be expensive, and with the help of a solicitor will be simple to arrange.

We are grateful for any gift we receive, and no matter how small or large a donation is, we can use it to improve the lives of local people in a lasting way.

 

Where to start?

When embarking on the creation or amendment of your Will, a great place to start is by listing all your current assets and their worth. You should also record any amounts you currently owe (e.g. mortgage debt or outstanding loans). The resulting balance will give you an idea of the value of your estate.

Next you could draft a list of all the people you wish to help or causes you would like to remember in your Will, before dividing the estate between them as you wish. To manage all of this you should select an executor or executors. These can be friends, family or professional people you trust.

Important information

The following information will need to be included in your Will when leaving a gift to The Avalon Group:

  • Registered charity name: Adult Placement Services Ltd
  • Registered charity number: 1048236
  • Registered Address: 6 Grove Park Court, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG1 4DP

Including The Avalon Group in an existing Will

You might be considering leaving us a gift by amending a Will you have already created. By simply adding a ‘codicil’ to your Will this can be completed with relative ease.

We can arrange for a codicil form to be sent to you, so if you would like to add The Avalon Group to your will, let us know and we will arrange for the information to be posted to you.

Need help?

We are happy to provide information and guidance to anyone hoping to leave a gift to Avalon in their Will. If you’d like any assistance please contact our Legacies Team on 01423 530053 or email fundraising@avalongroup.org.uk. Remember that any decision you make can be changed at any time, so don’t feel that you are committing to something which is set-in-stone.

We pledge to regularly publish articles, photos and videos in our news section, showing how money raised through legacy giving has benefited adults in your community.
