Don’t forget us, says charity

A COUNTY nature group is hoping to see the benefits of Remember A Charity Week.

The awareness-raising campaign runs from Monday to Sunday to remind people of the importance of legacies to charities.

Without the gifts left in wills, many charities, including Northumberland Wildlife Trust, would struggle to carry out their work.

In 2006 the trust was able to buy an area of coastline at Cresswell as a new nature reserve thanks to legacies from the public.

Chief Executive Mike Pratt said: “Northumberland Wildlife Trust is dedicated to wildlife conservation. Making a gift to us when a person writes or updates their Will is a very special way of ensuring we can continue to undertake our work on our 60 reserves.

“A donation will mean a new nature reserve can be purchased, a rare habitat secured, or that people who have the skills and passion to protect wildlife can continue to do this.”
