Leaving a gift in your will
Mid Devon Mobility is a local charity that provides transport services for those in need including elderly, frail, disabled & rurally isolated people in the Mid Devon area.
The purpose of the services we provide is to prevent social isolation, increasing & retaining independence, enable mobility & peace of mind, help to combat the problems of loneliness, to enable such vulnerable people to access medical & other essential services, clubs & organisations providing support, & to use the local shops & other amenities in the area.
With the rising costs of running such an organisation & the greater difficulty in obtaining funding from charitable trusts & other such sources, we are finding it increasingly difficult to raise the necessary funds to keep the services viable. Therefore we ask whether you are able to assist us in any way, Any gift, large or small, helps us to be able to continue to help people with transport needs, but a gift to MDM could also help reduce the inheritance tax on your estate.
If you have already made a Will, but would like to leave a gift to MDM, you can do so by making a simple addition to your existing will. This is called a codicil. (These forms are available from MDM) By adding this supplement to your will you can include new instructions and delete old ones without having to go through the task of revoking the whole will.
If you have not already made a Will, you may need to see a solicitor. Although you will have to pay a fee, you will receive sound professional advice and can be sure that your wishes are achieved. Two ways to give to MDM in your Will -Residuary gift – you can choose to leave a share, or the whole, of what is left in your estate once you have provided for your loved ones. – Pecuniary gift – you can choose to give a gift of a fixed amount of money.
