Why Other People are Giving a Gift in Their Will
Mary and Mike from Minehead
Mary has been a Catholic all her life, and Mike converted four years ago. They are enjoying retirement to the full.
“We have always tried to live out the Catholic faith, which has had a huge impact on our lives. We have always thought: ‘Do unto others as you would have done unto yourself’ – that must be a guiding principle. So leaving a legacy to a Catholic charity we respect seemed right.”
Pat from London
Pat describes himself as a Cradle Catholic. He is retired but still volunteers for his favourite Catholic charity.
“For me leaving a gift in my Will was very obvious; it is putting my faith into action. Through being involved with a Catholic cause my faith has taken on a different meaning, and I am pleased to be able to do something to help through leaving a legacy.”
Luisa from East Sussex
Life-long Catholic Luisa and her partner wrote their Wills after their son was born.
“Being a Christian has shaped my life; it’s who I am. That’s why leaving a gift in my Will to a Catholic charity seems the right thing to do. It simply makes sense to me.”
