I am not wealthy - is writing a Will worth it? Making a Will is the best way to ensure that your wishes are carried out after your death and your property, money and possessions go to the people and organisations that matter to you. You don't need to be rich to leave a gift to charity in your Will. Leaving just a small percentage (called a residuary legacy) to us in your Will goes a long way. These gifts are inflation proof and exempt from inheritance tax. People often find they can afford to be more generous in a Will than in their lifetime. No matter the size or amount, your gift will contribute to supporting local people in the last years of their life.
