“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” – Aesop

A gift that can make a difference

Recent research shows that one old person in five spends his/her day alone and that loneliness and isolation can be as harmful to our health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. And two fifths all older people say the television is their main company.

We believe we can reduce loneliness and isolation for older people by connecting communities with kindness and we would like to ask for your help.

Leaving a gift to Small Acts of Kindness in your will, however large or small, means that you will be helping to keep older people warm and less lonely and isolated for years to come.

You can either allocate a fixed amount or choose to provide the amount of money remaining in your estate after all other bequests and expenses have been paid. It is easy to arrange and if you have already written your will you can simply add a line within it, called a codicil.

If you would like to leave a gift in your will (sometimes called a legacy) to Small Acts of Kindness, please contact a professional such as your solicitor and they will advise you on the best way to do this.

The Chair of our Trustees, Chris Hamill, would be happy to talk to you, in confidence, about leaving a legacy and you can call him on 01923 372717 or email him [email protected]

Thank you for your kindness
