Legacies

Leaving a gift in your will to the Greater London Fund for the Blind

A significant portion of the GLFB’s income comes from gifts left in wills by people who care about the work that we do in providing vital assistance to blind and partially sighted people.

In fact it was one such legacy, from our founder Arthur Pearson that made the establishment of the GLFB possible in the first place.

You do not need a great deal of wealth to make a difference as every gift in a will for the GLFB means more lives can be changed for the better – permanently. Your legacy will help us ensure that we can continue to provide assistance to some of the most vulnerable people in society.

When writing or updating a will it is always advisable to seek independent legal advice. If you don’t have a solicitor, the Law Society has a searchable database of firms in your locality. Their website is www.lawsociety.org.uk

Once you have made provision for your loved ones please consider leaving a gift to the GLFB. Even a small amount can make a massive difference as every gift means another person benefits.

Legacy gifts to the GLFB help protect future services

Your legacy will help us protect future generations of blind and partially sighted people

Every day 100 people in the UK start losing their sight. And every year, the requests for assistance increases. Your legacy gift will help ensure the GLFB is able to be there when it matters most.

Please consider supporting our work in this very special way. It costs nothing during your lifetime but will have a powerful impact for years to come.

If you would like more information on how your legacy gift could help make a difference to future generations of blind and partially sighted people please contact Raj Bhayani, Head of Appeals on 020 7620 4918.

Thank you.
