Give in your Will

Leaving a gift in your Will to benefit future generations shows much foresight and generosity of spirit. Your gift will have a lasting impact and ensure Somerset’s wildlife and wild places will continue to exist and inspire other wildlife enthusiasts. After taking care of your loved ones, by remembering Somerset Wildlife Trust in your Will you too could leave an amazing gift.

Somerset Wildlife Trust is the county’s largest conservation charity and all the funding it receives is spent on rescuing and restoring Somerset’s wildlife and wild places. Since 1964 we have been working across the county to ensure it remains one of the most wildlife rich places to live, work and explore. During that time Bitterns have returned to boom on the Levels and the once extinct Large Blue Butterfly has been reintroduced – both are now thriving on Somerset Wildlife Trust nature reserves.


An amazing gift

Small or large, EVERY gift in every Will is valuable to us. Some are expressed as specific sums of money, or a percentage (even a 1% share) of residue. All are welcomed and will be used to support our conservation work in Somerset.

As a tightly run organisation, with a dedicated team of staff and volunteers, we work hard to keep our general administration costs low. We depend on the generosity of our individual supporters, companies and grant giving bodies to fund our work, and gifts in Wills are vital to our ability to continue our work and to invest in new projects.


Recognising your generosity

Wills are private matters but if you let us know that you have remembered Somerset Wildlife Trust we would like to show our appreciation and thank you. Please contact Lucy Marsh, Legacies, Patrons and Events Manager, in strictest confidence.

Wills Week - 6th - 13th November 2017 

Gifts in Wills are a crucial source of funding for the Trust. We are therefore delighted that Taunton-based Acorn Solicitors have chosen us as one of their five local charities they are supporting in their second Charity Wills Week of the year.   Between 6th-13th November they are offering a free will writing service, in return for a donation to one of their chosen charities. The Taunton office is now booked up during 6th-13th November, but are offering an extra day of this service on 15th November. And for those closer to Street, their offices there are still taking bookings. 

To make your booking you can call the Taunton office on: 01823 273 010

or the Street Office on: 01458 441 507
