£65 Million Windfall Forecast For Charities

"Although many people are willing to leave a gift to charity, currently only 39% of solicitors or Will-writers discuss this option with their customers, so there's a huge missed opportunity out there.  We are keen to ensure that our easily accessible, un-intimidating service will give customers the opportunity to leave vital legacies to the charities that matter to them most"

Remember A Charity promotes charitable giving and represents over 140 UK charities.  Once someone has decided to leave a gift in their Will, it is easy to find the charity that is right for them using the search facility on its website.

Rob Cope, director of Remember A Charity, said: "These figures underline the potential for legacy gifts and we are confident this partnership will encourage more people to write a Will and care for their loved ones and favourite charities."

Notes to editors

The joint initiative supports the UK Government's objective to make the UK the first country in the world where it is the social norm to leave 10% to charity in a Will, through changing people's attitudes to charitable giving.

The Co-operative Legal Services ( http://www.co-operativelegalservices.co.uk) was established in 2006.  Earlier this year it became the first major consumer brand to granted alternative business structure (ABS) status under the new Legal Services Act.  

Remember A Charity ( http://www.rememberacharity.org.uk) was formed in 2000 and now has over 140 member charities, who work together to encourage more people to consider leaving a gift to charities in their Will, after they've looked after their family and friends.
