Leave a gift in your Will

Mother and son

Through a gift in your Will, you could provide a brighter future for families through offering them a break. Of course, you’ll want to look after your family and friends, but even a small gift – a fixed amount or percentage of your estate – will make a massive different to families in need of a break.

 

How your gift makes a difference

A break may not sound like much, but those of us lucky enough to have been away know the real benefits of being able to switch off, recharge, spend time doing fun things and, well, relaxing.  The benefits are greater than those precious moments and memories though – the good times help us through the tough times.

We’re here for families facing unprecedented situations in their lives – like domestic abuse, bereavement, long term illness and disability.  These situations often come with disadvantages around income, housing and employment and training opportunities which mean they are unable to consider a break.

A holiday is a lifeline. Breaks help build resilience and confidence. They’re a chance to reset and make changes.  But they’re also a chance to just relax away from the things that grind us down.

Many of us are lucky enough to be able to reflect on times of happiness and togetherness – of days out, trips to the seaside, picnics in the park. I’ts these small but important things that we offer to families when they really need us the most.  If you’d like your legacy to be smiling children, happier families and a sense of joy and release, then please consider a gift to Family Holiday Association.
