Leaving a legacy
Did you know one third of all the money we raise comes from people leaving legacy gifts to Revitalise in their Will. No matter how big or small, legacies can be whatever you want them to be. From £100 to £10,000. From the remainder of an estate to anything left over after other gifts have been made. It’s up to you!
Why leave a legacy?
To the guests that come through our doors and the carers who love them so much, Revitalise is a safe haven and a lifeline, but there are almost 550,000 more people in the UK who could benefit from the joy of a Revitalise break. We believe that each of these people needs and deserves a break.
Legacy gifts allow us to do just that – provide much-needed and truly fulfilling breaks for disabled people and carers. Whatever you can leave, these gifts have a direct impact on future generations. Without these gifts Revitalise wouldn’t be here making a difference every day to the people that need us. We couldn’t do it without you.
“My Aunt spent each Christmas and New Year at Revitalise and really enjoyed the wonderful atmosphere and care that she was given. She was very much a ‘people person’ and loved to chat and be the centre of attention, especially when telling her jokes (usually bad ones!!)”
Tricia Davis, Niece of Margaret Grocock who was a Revitalise guest and legacy donor (pictured here)

What to do next
Revitalise understands that family and loved ones always come first and that looking after them is your priority. The first thing to do is decide what you wish to leave to them and then decide what you want to leave Revitalise. Then find a solicitor to make this happen; this can either be done over the phone or in person. Of course, making a Will sounds like a daunting task but with help from a solicitor it can be very straightforward.
We can assist anyone who is considering leaving a legacy to Revitalise. All enquiries are treated in the strictest confidence, and help and guidance given is completely free of charge, without any commitment or obligation on your part.
If you would like to find out more about leaving a legacy, please email Francesca Revell or call 0303 303 0145.
If you are considering making a legacy gift to Revitalise, and you are a UK tax payer, you can substantially increase the value of your gift, and benefit our work even more, by making all or part of your gift now. No tax can be reclaimed on a legacy received from an estate, but if you are paying UK tax, a Gift Aid Declaration enables Revitalise to reclaim tax that you have already paid and so increases the value of your gift by 25p in every pound.
