Leaving a Legacy

For some, leaving a legacy is the preferred way of supporting us. Those who do so will have a plaque bearing their name, made by the Men’s Shed which will be displayed at The Hub.

If you do decide to remember Hands Together Ludlow in your Will, you will need the following information:

·         Registered name: Hands Together Ludlow

·         Registered Address: 52 Broad Street, Ludlow SY8 1NH

·         Registered Charity number: 1171979

Gift options A gift can be of any size, small or large and all donations will be used to fund the on-going work of the charity. Legacy gifts generally fall into one of the following categories:

·         Residuary gift: a gift of any portion of your estate that remains after payment of debts, administration expenses and distribution of any specific gifts.

·         Pecuniary gift: a gift of a specific amount of money you desire to donate. Such gifts can be expressed to be ‘index linked’ so the sum gift holds its value in line with inflation.

·         Specific gift: a gift of a specific item you wish to leave, e.g. jewellery, artwork or furniture.

A share of your estate (a residuary gift) keeps pace with inflation and enables you to ensure that your family and friends are cared for. After you have thought about those closest to you, would you consider leaving just 1% of your estate to Hands Together Ludlow?

A legacy left to Hands Together Ludlow will attract charity exemption for inheritance tax. Additionally, you may wish to speak to your solicitor/lawyer about reducing the rate of inheritance tax from 40% to 36% on your estate if you leave 10% or more of the net value of your estate to Hands Together Ludlow.

When setting up a legacy we strongly recommend contacting a lawyer/solicitor for drawing up or amending your Will. If you decide to leave a gift to Hands Together Ludlow, your solicitor may use some specific wording to ensure your wishes are carried out.
