Free Will Month February 2020


Why making a will is important

Making a will is good for you and your loved ones. It provides peace of mind knowing that your wishes will be carried out, and the people you love taken care of.  

Making a will can be good for the countryside too

By leaving a gift to CPRE Kent, The Countryside Charity, you will be joining thousands of people who want to stand up for our countryside. The countryside is ours and our children’s heritage and by leaving a gift to CPRE Kent you will help to fund successful campaigns, protecting the countryside into the future. With no funding other than from our members and supporters your gift is all the more valuable. CPRE Kent is the only countryside charity that campaigns to protect the wider countryside throughout Kent. This means not limiting our support to purely ancient woodland, nature/wildlife reserves, Green Belts or AONBs or a specific species of flora or fauna, but all these important areas and more, including those parts of the countryside afforded no statutory protection.

In memorandum

Your gift in their memory, will go towards protecting our countryside into the future. You could celebrate your loved one’s life by setting up a fund with Just Giving, CAF Bank or by requesting gifts be placed in a simple donation box in lieu of flowers and making a one-off donation in your loved one’s memory.

What better way can there be to remember a loved one than by giving a gift to CPRE Kent, The Countryside Charity?
