Will you leave the world a better place for animals with a 1% gift in your will?

Your 1% can make a lifetime of difference

A simple way for you to leave a meaningful gift in your will to the charity or charities you care about. After you have looked after your loved ones, consider leaving a 1% gift.

Suggested wording for your will

Simply state "I leave 1% or the Residual of my Estate to..."

Why are we saying 1%?

Just 1% of your estate could make a real difference for animals, and it means you can still take care of your loved ones and know they will be looked after.
