The last 18 months have prompted many of us to reflect on the things that matter the most – family, friends and the causes close to our heart. We’ve also been reminded of the value of planning for the future, to help look after the things we care about most.
This year's Remember a Charity Week ran from 6 to 12 September.
After taking care of your family and friends, remembering to make even a small gift in your Will can have a huge impact on the lives of blind and partially sighted people in future.
Our free, simple and accessible Will writing services make it easier for you to write or update your Will. You can do this online, at home, or at a local solicitor's office, whatever works best for you.
Paul was born partially sighted and was registered blind in 2008. He’s left a gift in his Will to RNIB to help break down the barriers people with sight loss face.
“I’ve always been visually impaired. However, as my sight deteriorated, lighting and screen readers have become more essential.
“RNIB is important because it gives people with sight loss a voice, a sense of belonging and the comfort that someone cares. RNIB have helped me with information, advice, a grant for a new Daisy player and daily living aids.
“I’d like to be treated equally and for sight loss to no longer be a forgotten disability. By leaving a gift in your Will to RNIB you really can make a difference. I hope my legacy gift will continue to give people with sight loss a voice and their independence.”
More than a third of all our work is funded by gifts in Wills. So, however large or a small, your gift could be life changing for someone who is blind or partially sighted.
