A bequest to London Legal Support Trust is a wonderful way to leave a legacy that lasts. The effects of your generosity will be felt long after the gift is made.

We recommend that you seek legal advice when creating your will. There may be tax planning opportunities in leaving a charitable legacy.

Consider leaving a gift in your will to London Legal Support Trust. You can bequeath a share of an estate or a fixed sum of money. Once you have decided to give a legacy gift, you will need to provide your Will-writer with our details. Your Will-writer will then include different wording depending on the type of gift you are leaving:

A share of your estate: I give [X%/fraction] of the residue of my real and personal estate to London Legal Support Trust, Charity Number 1101906 of  c/o Hardwicke Building, New Square, Lincoln’s Inn, London, WC2A 3SB, and the receipt of the Honorary Treasurer or the proper officer shall be a complete discharge to my executors.

A fixed sum or a specific item: I give the sum of [£X/specific item] to London Legal Support Trust, Charity Number 1101906 of c/o Hardwicke Building, New Square, Lincoln’s Inn, London, WC2A 3SB, and the receipt of the Honorary Treasurer or other proper officer shall be a complete discharge to my executors.

How your gift will help:

Your bequest to London Legal Support Trust will mean you are helping people in need access much-needed legal advice for years and years to come. When people get high-quality legal advice at the right time, crises can be averted, and people’s lives can improve dramatically.

When you leave a gift in your will to London Legal Support Trust, you are helping a pensioner retain their benefits, a mother stay in her home, and a women fleeing domestic violence find safety.
