You can Make a Lasting Difference With a Bequest

One way to help Sumner Lifeboat financially is to make a bequest to us in your Will. A legacy of just a small sum can help our volunteers to save lives.

A bequest can be for a specific amount, or for a residual sum after the rest of your estate and family have been looked after.

An up-to-date Will is the best way to be sure your loved ones know which charities you care about, and how you would like to help them.

Over time it is easy to change your Will, so even if you already have a will you can add a bequest now. You can also amend it in the future to reflect your changing circumstances.

A bequest to Sumner Lifeboat will be used to help keep our crew safe and to have the best gear for saving lives at sea.

For example, bequests may go towards purchasing new equipment, paying operating costs or into funds for replacement lifeboats.

If you’d like to support us via a bequest, we suggest you consult your lawyer about how to include Sumner Lifeboat in your Will.
