Change even more lives with legacy giving

December 11th, 2020

Legacy giving is an amazing way to make a lasting impact in communities you care about. And it’s easier than you think to set up.

We’ve been working for over a decade to ensure children like Brito can access safe water at school and home. He now goes to school knowing he can get a drink or go to the toilet whenever he needs. That’s thanks to supporters like you.

Leaving a gift to Village Water in your will won’t prevent you from taking care of your loved ones, but it will help build a fairer world for more children like Brito

We focus on lasting local solutions so you know your gift will make an impact for years to come

We’re here to help you through the process, whether you’re setting up your first will or would like to amend an existing one.

We promise to handle your gift with sensitivity and respect, to respect your privacy and keep you and your loved ones updated about the gift if you choose.

What are the next steps?

  • We have partnered with Free Wills who provide free and legally-binding wills to our supporters, without visiting a solicitor or leaving your home. The process is very simple, allows you to divide your assets how you choose and leave money to charity.

    There’s no obligation to leave a gift to us but we hope you will so we can continue our work. Create your free will right now.
  • Also, every March and October is Free Wills Month – your chance to get a simple Will written for free. You can take advantage of this offer if you (or your partner when writing mirror Wills) are 55 or over. Visit during March or October, and enter your postcode. You’ll then be able to choose a solicitor and book an appointment (which doesn’t have to take place in March or October). Appointments are limited so make sure you book early.
  • Or, get in touch with Beth our dedicated legacy contact at or 01743 241563, to talk through any of the information above.
