At times it can be difficult to think about dying and what happens to your wealth after you are gone. It is important to consider how you would like to distribute your wealth. Many people do not realise that you can leave a gift in your will for your favourite charity.
Harrison’s Little Wings is extremely grateful for the loyal ongoing support we receive and are extremely blessed to have some amazing loyal supporters showing show up at every event to support all of our causes. We know our organisation and the service we provide to Women and their family is extremely important to you, why not consider leaving a legacy of love behind, and leave a gift in your will. We would love to be able to honour you and respect your wishes after you have gone. If you would like to chat to one of our team about joining our bequest club. Please email Melanie email@example.com
