How to leave a gift to Rock UK in your Will

Making a Will is a great opportunity to think about what is important to you and to ensure your wishes are carried out. It’s essential, whatever your age, to ensure your family and friends are provided for and to ensure your money and possessions are distributed according to your wishes.

We are incredibly grateful for each and every gift kindly left to Rock UK. If you would like to leave a gift to Rock UK in your Will there are three main ways to do this. Here we explain the three ways, as well as the information you need to include in your Will to make sure we receive your kind gift.

1. A share of your estate
Many people choose to leave a share of their estate to charity – this can be a percentage of what is left over once loved ones are provided for or it can be any percentage you like.

As this gift is a proportion of your estate it keeps pace with inflation.

Example
I give to Rock UK Adventure Centres Ltd of Frontier Centre, Addington Road, Irthlingborough, Northants, NN9 5UH Charity Registration Number: 1107724 (ENGLAND & WALES) SC040118 (SCOTLAND) __% [proportion of residue in words] for its general purposes and I direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or other duly authorised officer shall be a sufficient discharge to my Executors.

2. Fixed sum of money
You can choose to leave a fixed sum of money, also known as a pecuniary gift.
You can choose any amount you like but it is worth remembering that if you do decide to leave this type of gift, it is important to review it from time to time as inflation can reduce its value.

Example
I give to Rock UK Adventure Centres Ltd of Frontier Centre, Addington Road, Irthlingborough, Northants, NN9 5UH Charity Registration Number: 1107724 (ENGLAND & WALES) SC040118 (SCOTLAND) the sum of £___ [amount in words] for its general purposes and I direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or other duly authorised officer shall be a sufficient discharge to my Executors.

3. Gift of a specific item
You can also choose to leave a particular item to Rock UK, such as a piece of jewellery, an antique or even a property. A gift like this should be named in your Will.

Example
I give to Rock UK Adventure Centres Ltd of Frontier Centre, Addington Road, Irthlingborough, Northants, NN9 5UH Charity Registration Number: 1107724 (ENGLAND & WALES) SC040118 (SCOTLAND) [description of item(s)] absolutely for its general purposes and I direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or other duly authorised officer shall be a sufficient discharge to my Executors.
