Leaving a Gift in your Will to Playskill once you’ve taken care of your family and friends will help secure our future, meaning more children will reach their full potential in life.
A Will or bequest is an amount of money or property left in a Will.
- This can be a specific amount known as a pecuniary legacy
- A percentage of the remainder of your estate after all your other wishes have been looked after, known as a residuary gift
- Or a specific gift such as a piece of jewellery or equipment
It is important to make a Will as it makes sure all your wishes are upheld after you die. Having a Will in place ensures all parties are aware of your wishes, and protects from any upset during a difficult time.
