If you decide to leave a gift in your will to us you will be helping to make life better for older people throughout the county for years to come. Every legacy, no matter the amount, will help to ensure that an older person, somewhere in East Sussex, will get the help and support they need.

How to leave a gift in your will

Having a will and keeping it up-to-date helps ensure that your wishes can be respected and your property and assets benefit people and causes you really care about. We would always recommend that you speak to a qualified professional such as a solicitor, when making or amending your will.

Your solicitor will be able to advise you on the required wording to carry out your wishes. If you wish to leave a gift to Age UK East Sussex in your will, all you need is our charity details below:

Age UK East Sussex, 54 Cliffe High Street, Lewes, East Sussex, BN7 2AN.
and our registered charity number 1139470.

If you already have a will

If you already have a will and wish to include a gift to Age UK East Sussex in it, there may not be need to rewrite it.  You can ask a qualified professional such as a solicitor to add an amendment (called a codicil).  As a general rule, if the change you wish to make is quite small or simple, you can use a codicil, and if the change is more significant or complex you should make a new will.

What kind of gift can I leave to Age UK East Sussex

You can leave a specific sum of money or an item such as jewellery or a piece of art.  Or you can leave a share in, or all of, what's left of the value of your estate after family and friends have been taken care of.  The advantage of leaving a share (also known as a residuary gift) is that it remains the same over time, and you won't need to change your will to keep up with inflation.
