remain independent, informed and healthy.  We work to ensure that people live with dignity and respect and are able to make the most of later life.
Legacies can help in so many ways.  For example, in 2010 we received a legacy that enabled us to 
expand our Feet First Service.  The Service makes a tremendous difference to the lifestyle of older 
people who may have become isolated because of foot problems.  
Please remember that your legacy gift does not need to be a large amount to make a very real 
difference – gifts range from a few hundred to 
thousands of pounds. Gifts can be either a specific sum or a share in the balance, called a share of the residue.  Your family may benefit too because a lower rate of inheritance tax applies if over ten per cent of an estate is left to charity.
How to leave a gift in your Will:
To leave a gift to Age UK Surrey in your Will, you will only require a few key pieces of information to take with you to your solicitor.
•  The name of the charity: Age UK Surrey
