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.

Did you know?

Gifts in Wills help us to support five in ten of our blind veterans. We need this funding to continue supporting our beneficiaries.

Your gift makes a real difference

Leaving a gift in your Will helps us to provide high-quality, bespoke support to blind veterans, as and where they need it, enabling them to achieve independence and fulfilment.

Since 1915, we’ve provided lifelong rehabilitation, training, practical advice and emotional support to tens of thousands of blind veterans.

There are still tens of thousands of blind veterans across the UK who need our help, and we rely on gifts in Wills to reach them.
