Fatima Whitbread MBE highlighting Remember A Charity Week

New research from Remember A Charity, a consortium of nearly 200 charities, reveals that three in five (61%) UK adults – and 46% of those aged 40+ – have not yet written a Will. This Remember A Charity Week, the organisation is encouraging the public to take a moment to consider leaving an unforgettable legacy with a gift to charity in their Will, after looking after family and friends.

Many have a strong sense of how they wish to be remembered, with half of the public wanting to be remembered for their role in their family (52%) or their morals, values and compassion (49%). And over a third of people (34%) hope to leave the world a better place.

Six in ten people recognise that passing on a sentimental gift to future generations can provide comfort to your loved ones, reminding people of treasured moments and memories for years to come.
