Leaving a gift in your will isn't complicated and has a long lasting effect.
Why leave a legacy?
By leaving a gift in your will you will be supporting our vital work in Huddersfield. Here at The Welcome Centre, we’re more than just a food bank. We help people by providing emergency food as well as advice, guidance and support.
We want to make sure no one goes hungry in Huddersfield, and that no crisis turns in to a tragedy.
Leaving a legacy is a great way to continue supporting a charity that matters to you, long after your lifetime. It's the gift that keeps on giving.
A parishioner at Holmfirth Holy Trinity Church left a donation of £1,000 in his will. The donation was able to provide the equivalent of 1116 meals of food.
Leaving a legacy isn't complicated but making a will and keeping it up to date is important.
If you have already made a will but want to leave a gift to The Welcome Centre, your solicitor can add a codicil, that lists the changes you would like to make.
If you don't have a will in place, then you can seek advice from a variety of sources. Our will writing partners are local solicitors Ison Harrison who can provide all will writing services. They offer face to face meetings at home or at their offices in Huddersfield town centre. To contact them about writing a will or leaving a legacy quote TWC19.
