How Can You Help?
Age Concern Canterbury operates in an environment of increasing demand. We rely primarily on the generosity of the community, which supports our work through legacies, donations and membership fees. More funding allows us to help more people, reducing loneliness and isolation for many older people in our community. We are also deeply indebted to the efforts of our 400+ volunteers without whose help we could not function.

Make a bequest
A Will is a formal record of your wishes and of the way you want your assets distributed. It is a very important and necessary legal document which must be prepared and signed according to strict rules to be effective. You should seek help about this. If you die without making a Will, your estate (your money and property) will be divided between your near relatives in proportions fixed by law, which may not be what you wanted.
If you wish to make a gift of all or part of your estate to a specific organisation like Age Concern Canterbury this is called a Bequest. This may take the following forms:
- A percentage or financial portion of your estate
- A specific asset(s) such as property or shares
- A cash legacy

Leaving a bequest to Age Concern Canterbury will directly help older people enjoy a full life for more than your lifetime.
