Make a Will Week

By making or updating your will this March, you can have a will made just for a donation to charity and help support local people in Essex affected by sight loss.

Tees Law are offering a free will writing service during Make a Will Week (7th-11th March 2016) in exchange for a minimum donation of £100 to Support 4 Sight for single wills or a minimum donation of £150 for mirror wills for couples.

Both the Saffron Walden and Chelmsford Tees Law branches are participating in this Will Week and have chosen Support 4 Sight as their charity of the year. Spaces are limited and people are invited to book their slots to avail of this offer.

If you wish to book a slot in Saffron Walden, please contact Tees Law to register your place on 01799 582774 or email Heather Fuff at hf@teeslaw.co.uk.

Gifts in Wills

Losing your sight can be devastating and our work supporting people to adapt to their blindness helps them feel less lonely. A gift in your will is one way of supporting our charity for many years to come.

Gifts or legacies come in all shapes and sizes – with gifts ranging from £50 to £20,000, from 1% of an estate to 100% or anything left over after other gifts have been made.

In the future, greater numbers of people will rely on our services.  One in 12 people aged over 60 years will develop significant sight loss through aged-related degenerative eye conditions. Many of us may experience some very tough times associated with becoming blind. And that includes the people we love. The fact is the older we become, the more likely we are to need sight loss support, in order to face life as a blind person.

By putting a gift in your will to Support 4 Sight, you can make sure that we will be there for the people you love and other local people; if they ever need us. With emotional and practical support, given with compassion and expertise, they can keep on living their life and feeling in control of their sight loss.
