Charity goes digital to encourage legacy giving


Remember A Charity Week 2016, which takes place this week (12-18 September), encourages people to consider leaving a charitable gift in their Will.

To mark the occasion, Remember A Charity has obtained over 500 quotes from charity supporters and celebrities. Notable supporters who contributed their words of wisdom included, Alan Sugar ‘Don’t worry if you make mistakes – they are the best way to learn’, Bill Bryson ‘Be kind, be decent and try to leave the world at least slightly better than you found it’ and Gary Lineker’s ‘Don’t head the ball in training’.

These inspirational quotes and phrases are a way for people to pass on the values people hold dear, as is leaving a gift to a charity in a Will and supporting a cause that they believe in. Remember A Charity is now encouraging the nation to leave their own words of wisdom through their online quote generator and to share them with the hashtag #mywisdom.

The charity is also asking the nation to reflect on the wisdom passed between the generations and in celebration of this, Aardman Animations, creator of Wallace and Gromit, has released a new short film highlighting some wise words of wisdom that we all roll out every day without thinking about.

The short film is voiced by Barnsley poet and broadcaster Ian McMillan, includes quotes sourced from charity supporters across the UK, including Eamonn Holmes and Rufus Hound.
