Happy New Year - our first newsletter of 2021! Throughout this year we will continue to bring you news and developments relating to the charities sector.

So, what is the need for such a campaign? A report published in January 2017 found that while 35% of people said they would leave a legacy to a charity in their will after ensuring their loved ones were looked after, only 7% actually do so.
