By Donna Abel, chief executive of Jersey Cheshire Home
AS a local charity, we are one of the best kept secrets in Jersey, only touching those disabled individuals and their family and friends who need our support. If you know us, you will love us.
We rely on income from donations and fundraising to ensure our survival. Without income from donations or legacies, we could very soon cease to exist, something which is worrying.
Talking about legacies and will-making can be a little uncomfortable. However, planning is important when leaving a legacy.
A legacy is not just about what you did while you were here; it is about what happens when you are gone. Without legacies, we could not continue our vital work of enhancing the lives of disabled Islanders.
You can trust that legacies received will remain at Jersey Cheshire Home. A legacy gift in a will makes a real difference to us, as it enables us to continue to deliver specialist care to some of the most vulnerable Islanders, helping us to offer a future after disability and ensuring our survival while keeping your memory alive.
A legacy is bigger than any self-serving purpose. Remembering Jersey Cheshire Home when making your will is one of the most generous and long-lasting acts you will ever perform. Thank you for remembering us.
