Your gift is more than a donation: it’s part of the legacy you’ll leave to future generations. That includes the servicemen and women who are bravely putting their lives on the line for us today, without any way of knowing what tomorrow might bring.

ONE IN THREE OF ALL THE PEOPLE WE HELP EACH YEAR ARE SUPPORTED BY GIFTS IN WILLS.

Rapid advances in battlefield medicine during the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan mean many service personnel survived injuries that would have proved fatal a decade earlier. But without the right support, some face a daily battle. The future is uncertain for them and their families.

No matter when or where someone served, or how long they were in uniform, we are here for them and their family. And because it can take many years for veterans from past conflicts to seek support, the demand for our services is increasing all the time.

Without legacies, we simply couldn’t help as many people as we do, or promise the life-long support our veterans and their families deserve. Legacy gifts fund a third of all our work; changing – and often saving – the lives of our wounded heroes.
