Information for executors

How do I know if a gift is meant for Blind Veterans UK?

The best way to tell if a gift is for us is if our name and/or registered charity number 216227 is mentioned in the Will.

A Will may not refer to us as Blind Veterans UK but as St Dunstan’s, as this was our charity's name before it changed in 2012. 

Wills that mention St Dunstan's may also reference ‘Caring for ex-Servicemen and women' or ‘An independent future for blind ex-Servicemen and women'.
