Please download the leaflet linked below for guidance and advice on leaving a donation to our cause in your will.
A memorial donation is a fitting way to remember a special person whilst helping their favourite cause. If you would like to leave a gift in memorial or make a donation, such as in lieu of flowers, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss your options and supply donation envelopes.
LEAVE A LEGACY
By leaving a gift in your will, you will be supporting our excellent conservation and education work, and potentially helping us to save a number of historic examples of railway rolling stock and infrastructure from `extinction’.
Leaving a legacy gift to Avon Valley Railway Heritage Trust ‘for general purposes’, means the Trust can use it where the conservation need is greatest, which could be a considerable number of years after the will is made.
We would advise against being too specific in order to guard against future problems. For example, if a legacy gift is left for a specific project that has already been carried out, we may not be able to make use of your gift. However, if you would like to leave a legacy gift to a particular area of Avon Valley Railway, please include the words “but without imposing a binding obligation” in your will.
