Legacy

Leaving a gift in your Will is a wonderful way to ensure that Tia can continue it’s work in helping the hundreds of Greyhounds & Lurchers we care for every year and the many Heavy Horses we rescue and give a permanent home to. The money will go towards us providing food, bedding and veterinary care for the 80 plus dogs we have in the kennels at any one time. It will enable help us to keep our promise to never destroy a healthy dog and ensuring we can give a permanent home to the dogs who for whatever reason will never be suitable to be rehomed. The Heavy Horses we rescue will usually be kept in our care for the rest of their lives.

 

If you would like to remember Tia in your Will, there are three main types of gift you can make:

  • Residuary Gift – is the gift of all (or part) of the value of your estate after debts, liabilities and other legacies have been paid and is the most valuable kind of legacy to Tia.
  • Pecuniary Gift – is the gift of a particular sum of money.
  • Specific – is the gift of a specified item that could be for example; property, a painting or a piece of jewellery.

Suggested wording for a gift in your Will

If you would like to leave Tia a gift in your Will the following wording may be helpful when you visit your legal advisor:

“I give all (or a _% share of) the residue of my estate to Tia Greyhound Rescue Charity (Registered Charity Number 1105626), Mill Race Farm, Wroot Road, Finningley, Doncaster, DN9 3DY  for its general charitable purposes and I direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or duly authorised officer shall be a valid and appropriate form of discharge.”

Suggested wording for a codicil to Tia Greyhound Rescue:

If you have already made your Will and decide that you would like to add a gift to Tia, the following wording for a codicil may be helpful when you visit your legal advisor:

“I (name) of (address) declare this to be my first codicil to my last Will dated (date). I give (details of legacy) to Tia Greyhound Rescue Charity (Registered Charity Number 1105626), Mill Race Farm, Wroot Road, Finningley, Doncaster, DN9 3DY   shall be valid and appropriate form of discharge. In all other respects I confirm my Will.”

Whilst Tia have made these suggestions we would always urge you to seek professional advice when sorting out the legal matters of a will.
