Legacies

Why not leave a Legacy to Murray Hall Community Trust?

You could also help Murray Hall Community Trust by leaving us a legacy in your will – helping us continue our essential work.

Charities are exempt from Inheritance Tax, so leaving money to Murray Hall Community Trust means that the charity benefits from every penny.

Legacies of all sizes are invaluable. If you would like to leave a Legacy to Murray Hall Community Trust, you will need to give instructions to your Solicitor. Here is an example of the kind of wording you could ask your Solicitor to use:

“I (your name) give (the amount) to Murray Hall Community Trust, registered Charity No 1041070, for its general charitable purposes and I declare that the receipt of the honorary treasurer or other proper officer of Murray Hall Community Trust for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said legacy.”

If you have already made your Will, you can still leave a gift to Murray Hall Community Trust. By adding a Codicil to your Will, you can leave a legacy to Murray Hall Community Trust, ensuring that the other provisions in your Will remain untouched, and you won’t have to pay for your Will to be completely re-written. Again you need to give instructions to your Solicitor.

Here is an example of the wording of a Codicil:

“This is a Codicil of me (name) of (address) to my Will dated (date). I give (the amount) to Murray Hall Community Trust, registered Charity No 1041070, for its general charitable purposes and I declare that the receipt of the honorary treasurer or other proper officer of Murray Hall Community Trust for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said legacy. In all other respects I confirm my Will dated (date of original Will).”
