Wildlife Forever – A Living Memorial

Group by Helena Dolby for Sheffield & Rotherham Wildlife Trust

How would you like to be remembered? This is the question being asked by Derbyshire Wildlife Trust to spearhead the launch of their month long campaign A Will for Wildlife.

During the month of November, we will be highlighting the importance of making a will – not only to look after loved ones, but to make sure our country’s natural treasures are protected for future generations to enjoy. What better way to be remembered?

Legacies have helped the Trust to extend their nature reserves at Gang Mine, Hartington Meadows and Erewash Meadows, as well enabling them to preserve species rich areas. It’s not all about land purchases though. Legacies have allowed Derbyshire Wildlife Trust to introduce thousands of children to the joys of nature and remind thousands of adults of the delight it brings.

Jane Proctor, Head of Business Development at Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, said: “By remembering Derbyshire Wildlife Trust in your will you really are leaving a lasting legacy for wildlife and people.”

We have teamed up with local solicitors to give their supporters opportunity to get a simple will, written at a discounted rate. If you are interested in leaving a legacy to Derbyshire Wildlife Trust the next step is to discuss your Will with a Solicitor. There may be a few things you need from the Trust, so feel free to call them on 01773 881188. More information on this can be found on Derbyshire Wildlife Trust’s website www.derbyshirewildlifetrust.org.uk/leave-gift-your-will . Anyone can leave a gift to the Trust when making a will. It’s one of the easiest and most valuable ways you can support them.
