Christian Aid

Join Will Aid 2017 it’s good for everyone!


Leaving a legacy is an inspiring way to make a difference after your lifetime. Every year, hundreds of our supporters include us in their Wills. A legacy may be an act of faith – a way to acknowledge the blessings you’ve received during your life. Or of ensuring your values of compassion and justice live on after you’ve gone. For many of our supporters, it’s a confirmation of their belief in our vision of putting an end to poverty – and a way to ensure our vital work can go on.


Esther, who died of a rare bone cancer when she was just 14, was inspired to leave a gift to Christian Aid by her desire to make a lasting difference to the lives of others. After Esther’s death, her mother Kathy went to Haiti to see for herself how gifts like Esther’s are transforming lives. ‘I saw people who had lost everything in the 2010 earthquake rebuilding their homes. I saw crops being sown and children being fed. And then there was Rocheline.’ Kathy Childress. Rocheline is a young girl living in one of the poorest districts of Porte-au-Prince. Just like Esther, she had discovered the healing power of art therapy.


We believe that a gift in your Will is not just a financial gift, but a gift of trust – and one that we truly value.


November is Will Aid month. Everyone benefits from Will Aid. Will Aid is a great opportunity to put your affairs in order while helping people in need around the world. Each November, you can use a local solicitor who has signed up to Will Aid and you can enjoy the added feel-good factor of supporting nine leading UK charities. Please consider leaving a gift in your will this November as part of Will Aid. Instead of paying your solicitor’s fee, you will be invited to make a donation to charity. The suggested voluntary donation is £95 for a basic Will or £150 for a pair of basic mirror Wills.
