Leave a legacy

Vice President Wendy Craig talks about legacy giving

A prayer from Wendy Craig:

Lord, the legacy of your love is shown to us each day of our lives.  Thank you for all your wonderful gifts and the knowledge that we shall inherit everlasting life through the sacrifice of your beloved son.

     Thank you too for the love we have inherited from those who have gone before us, and help us to be faithful stewards to all you have entrusted to us.

     Fill us with your spirit and encourage us to live according to your wishes, joyfully sowing, to the generations of the future, the seeds that will bring forth the fruits of your kingdom on earth.  Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Around a quarter of our work is funded by legacy gifts

The thoughtful gifts of legacies left by many of our faithful supporters see the lives of people affected by leprosy transformed long after their own lives. We are very grateful for the kindness shown by these supporters.

It would be a wonderful blessing if you could remember The Leprosy Mission with a gift in your Will, once you have provided for your family and dependents

If you are planning to leave, or have already left, a legacy gift, we thank you and suggest considering informing both your loved ones and The Leprosy Mission of your decision to make a charitable provision in your Will. We also highly recommend consulting a lawyer or financial advisor to ensure that all of your goals are considered. For more information on including us in your legacy, please contact Marina Swift, Legacy Officer, on 01733 404878 or by emailing marinas@tlmew.org.uk.

A will to give a legacy of love

Our booklet ‘A Will to give a Legacy of Love’ contains information for preparing wills, sections for recording personal wishes and key information for family.  It is accompanied by a DVD featuring testimonies from Wendy Craig and some of our supporters, that gives further details of our work.
