The most wonderful gift you could ever make to help create a walking nation won't cost you a penny in your lifetime. Help create streets fitter for walking with a gift in your Will to Living Streets.
People of all abilities should be able to walk freely, safely, breathe fresh air and socialise on our streets and public places. We hope this vision is one that you want for your children and grandchildren.
A gift in your will to Living Streets will help us recreate safe, vibrant streets and to reverse the long-term decline in walking. Let’s walk forward together. One step, one street and one community at a time.
"Put simply, walking needs a hero"
We would always recommend getting advice from a solicitor on these matters. A good introductory overview is available from HM Government and from the Citizens Advice Bureau.
Your estate assets may be subject to Inheritance Tax, and it may be advantageous to divide your estate so that your loved ones are left gifts below the tax threshold; meaning they will not have to pay Inheritance Tax. As charities are exempt from this tax, you could choose to divide the remainder between your chosen causes.
There are a number of different ways you can leave a walking legacy, depending on your circumstances. You can leave a share of your assets or estate (calculated as a percentage), which is known as a Residuary gift. If you've already made a Will, but want to add a residuary gift, we recommend getting advice from your solicitor on how to do this. You can leave a fixed sum of money, which is known as a Pecuniary gift. Finally, you can leave a specific item of value.
