Why leave us a gift in your Will

Leaving a gift in your Will is the perfect way to support a cause you care about and make a lasting difference to blind veterans' lives.

Below, you can see the significant impact that gifts in Wills have on our beneficiaries, and find out how we spend your gift with care and consideration. 

Regardless of how much you give, your gift will transform the lives of ex-Servicemen and women living with sight loss.

Meet Rob

“My life has been rebuilt by gifts in Wills.”

These incredible gifts are vital to Blind Veterans UK to ensure that the skills and experience the charity has gained since 1915 are never lost.

While in Afghanistan in 2010, Rob suffered severe head and facial injuries when an improvised explosive device went off. One of his eyes was destroyed immediately, while the other was so badly damaged that it was later removed in hospital.

“The rehabilitation and support that Blind Veterans UK offers is huge. I don't know where I'd be without it. There was no other organisation that could have brought me back to the world.

“I’ve left a gift in my own Will to ensure that support is available for blind veterans long into the future. Leaving a gift in your Will, after you’ve taken care of your own loved ones like I have, will help make sure help is there for future blind veterans when they need it.”
