Charity urges will writers to help grant wishes
A charity is asking members of the public to help make children's wishes come true by leaving a donation when writing their will
The Make a Wish Foundation is launching a new appeal for support to coincide with the UK's first Remember a Charity Week.
Running from September 13th to 19th, the initiative aimed to highlight the impact that such legacies can have on the lives of those helped by charities.
Make a Wish spokesperson Amanda Baughen explained that legacy gifts are a vital source of income for non-profit organisations.
In the case of the Make a Wish Foundation, they help to grant the wishes of children living with life-threatening illnesses in the UK.
"By remembering in your will a charity that you have supported during your lifetime you can carry on your support into the future," said Ms Baughen.
A survey carried out earlier this year by the not-for-profit sector research consultancy nfpSynergy showed that young people are more likely to donate money to charity in their will than their older counterparts.
