Legacies

If you love the Dales then please help us to keep this place special by leaving our registered charity a gift in your will.

Such a gift will help the Dales stay vibrant and protected – so that others can gain the same pleasure from this amazing area in the future.

  • We have been a trusted and successful environmental campaigning charity for more than 40 years.
  • We can supply stories and testimonials to show how legacies have helped us in the past.
  • Any gift of any size is valuable to us (and other things as well as money can be left).

If you would like to support our charity through a gift in your will, we recommend speaking to your solicitor. Your solicitor will want to know our charity’s registration details and the type of gift you prefer. This could be a specific sum or perhaps a fixed percentage of your estate. You might it helpful to print this page so you take this note along:

“I wish to make the following gift in my will. I give and bequeath …………. % share of my estate OR the sum of £……….. to Friends of the Dales (a registered working name of the Yorkshire Dales Society), of Canal Wharf, Eshton Road, Gargrave, North Yorkshire, BD23 3PN (Registered charity number 515384) for its general charitable purposes absolutely.”

Two national will writing campaigns, funded by larger charities offer a special service to people wanting to leave a legacy to charity. Solicitors participating in these campaigns offer reduced or even free will-writing services. Visit Free Wills Month available to people over 55 years and Will Aid Month which is open to everyone each November!
