Remember A Charity Week 2020: Leave a donation to Hafal in your Will!

 

Hafal is delighted to support Remember A Charity Week 2020, an annual campaign to encourage more people to leave a gift to a charity in their Will.

Gifts in Wills are vital for most charities. Despite this, many people aren’t even aware of this form of giving – so Remember A Charity aims to raise more awareness of this with their annual week-long campaign.

Remember a Charity Week 2020 runs from 7th-13th September and this year sees The Wombles brought back to the nation’s screens (as seen above) to encourage people to leave a donation to a charity in their Will.

Have you considered leaving a gift in your will to Hafal?

Hafal means ‘equal’ and we’ve been campaigning for people will mental illness to have equal rights around their care, accommodation, education, finances and more, for decades. Sadly, we know that we’ll need to keep campaigning for decades to come. It’s important. Important to service users, with one individual recently saying “Coming to Hafal is the best thing I have ever done. If it wasn’t for Hafal, I don’t think I’d be here.”

But did you know we also care for people with dementia, children with long term, life limiting conditions and people with additional learning needs?

Why are gifts in wills so important?

These special gifts are so important to Hafal and the people we support.

Imagine being able to provide long lasting friendly contact for someone who feels totally alone, respite care for someone with learning disabilities, or their carer or a holiday for a child who faces significant health challenges.

You can do this, through a gift in your will.

Knowing about your gift helps us plan for the future, and in these uncertain times, a gift in your will has never been more important.

How we’re funded

At the moment, most of our income comes from contracts with health boards, local authorities and the Welsh Government. That leaves us vulnerable to funding cuts and changing funding priorities. We need donations from people who support our work to help us continue to deliver the kinds of services that change lives.

When the time comes

When the time comes, and if you’d like to, please consider supporting a charity like Hafal through a gift in your will. After you’ve made sure that those you love are looked after, a gift of even 1% of your estate could mean that Hafal can continue campaigning and changing lives.
