Leave a Legacy
A legacy gift is a specific item or donation left in a Will. It’s also commonly known as ‘gifts in Wills’. Legacy gifts can be a significant way contributing to a cause you care about.
Leaving a legacy will cost nothing today, but by leaving a gift in your will, this will help BBS UK continue to provide important services for years to come.
For your will to be valid and to ensure that your wishes are carried out, we would always recommend that you seek the advice of a solicitor.

Whether you want to skydive, run, or knit your way to supporting BBS UK, you can tell people all about, it.
Update your supporters and collect donations in your own dedicated Just Giving page, by clicking the ‘Fundraise for us’ button on our Just Giving page.
Sponsors can register their donation to claim gift aid to make your donation worth much more – for every pound donated, BBS UK can claim an extra 25p from Inland Revenue.
To claim gift aid, we need the names and addresses of your sponsors and they must be UK tax payers. We can collect that information on paper sponsorship forms, or if you have set up online fundraising with Just Giving the gift aid is claimed automatically.
