provide a valuable source of income to charities. Latest figures
show that total income to charities from Wills exceeds £1.5bn
per annum. For some of the larger charities this can amount to over
a third of annual income.
When making your Will you may wish to give a legacy to Take Heart.
Even a very modest amount would assist with our fund-raising. Legacies
are an increasingly important part of our annual income.
One advantage of leaving a legacy to Take Heart is that the value
of the legacy is completely free of Inheritance Tax (the tax which
applies to the value of your estate on death).
Specimen wording for a legacy
is as follows:
“I give a Legacy in the sum of £ free of
tax to Take Heart of the Yorkshire Heart Centre F Floor, Jubilee
Building, The General Infirmary at Leeds LS1 3EX, Registered Charity
No: 1002063 to be applied for its charitable purposes and I declare
that the receipt of the treasurer or other authorised official for
the time being of the said charity shall be a full and sufficient
discharge to my trustees.”
