Gifts in Wills

How Love Lives On

Stories of gifts in Wills.

Thanks to Christian Aid supporters, love is alive across the world. It's in the clean, fresh water in a village in Kenya. It's in the relief supplies that reach a refugee camp in Bangladesh. And it's in the projects supporting farmers to build resilience to climate change by diversifying their crops.

You can let your love live on past your own lifetime. By leaving a gift in your Will to Christian Aid, you can help build a fairer, more peaceful world for the next generation.

Trish's story

Trish has remembered Christian Aid with a gift in her Will.

"I'm retired, but in my working life I was a shepherd. I started working with sheep when I was 20, on various farms in Galloway and in the Scottish borders. I now volunteer as a Christian Aid organiser.

I don't have a family of my own, but I've got a Christian Aid family that I don't know, who I've been helping for a long time, and I pledged a gift to Christian Aid in my Will so I can go on helping them after I've gone. I've seen that the money we give is put to good use and used wisely. Christian Aid has so much love for the world."

Maggie's story

Maggie's husband David left a gift to Christian Aid in his Will.

"I met David on a walking holiday, and two years later we were married. He was passionate about Christian Aid. He always did voluntary work for them, and when he retired he became the local secretary - it became much more like a full-time job for him!

He wanted to be pro-active in helping people. He felt that because Christian Aid was so important to him throughout his life, then with his legacy it could carry on. We all feel very proud of him."
