British Red Cross

What we do

The British Red Cross helps millions of people in the UK and around the world prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies, disasters and conflicts. We refuse to ignore people in crisis. The Red Cross in Northern Ireland provide a wide range of services including responses to major emergencies such as fires and floods, helping people cope after such events.

We educate people in life saving skills, enabling them to respond to emergencies in their communities running courses and talks for members of the public, groups schools and companies. We provide time limited support to vulnerable people, helping them live independently in their own homes, reducing admission to hospitals and residential care.

We help vulnerable asylum seekers and refugees access essential services and adjust to life in a new country. We provide short-term assistance to people who are otherwise destitute.

Gifts in Wills

People in the UK and throughout the world depend on the Red Cross. We are there to help people, whoever and wherever they are, in crises large and small. Currently, around £1 in every £4 of our donated income comes from gifts in wills. We need that money to ensure our life-saving work continues long into the future. We also need it so that we are ready to act immediately whenever an emergency happens. If the British Red Cross is to continue helping people in crisis, it is vital that our supporters continue to remember us in this special way.

Children in Crossfire
Long Business Description:

Children in Crossfire

What We Do

When he was only 10 years old, Richard Moore from Derry/Londonderry was blinded by a rubber bullet fired at point blank range. Richard could have given in to bitterness but chose instead to live a life of forgiveness, compassion and caring for others. He founded Children in Crossfire in 1996, with the goal of helping free some of the world’s most vulnerable children from poverty and injustice.

Since then, Children in Crossfire has changed the lives of many thousands of children in African countries. Our focus now is on Early Childhood Development in Tanzania and Ethiopia, where we work to ensure young children in those countries get the positive start in life they deserve. Progress has been made there in recent years but so much more is needed. Providing access to a school building is on its own not enough for the children we help. A more nutritious diet, access to safe and clean water, well trained teachers, properly equipped classrooms and class sizes that allow for learning are all vital if young children are to fulfil their potential. For every £1 Children in Crossfire raises, 84p is invested directly in our programmes. That money is not only life-changing, often it is life-saving.

Our goal is simple: to do more for more. That requires us to raise more. We hope you will be inspired by our vision.

Gifts in Wills

By leaving a legacy to Children in Crossfire you will be investing in the futures of some of the world’s most vulnerable children. Your gift will help them to grow up in good health and well educated – ensuring they can fulfil their potential in life.

Christian Aid Ireland
Long Business Description:

Christian Aid Ireland

What we do

Christian Aid Ireland is an international aid and development agency of the Protestant Churches of Great Britain and Ireland. We are determined to end poverty and injustice worldwide with the help of our supporters and partners. As part of the Christian Aid family, we work across 40 countries to support poor and marginalised people, whatever their beliefs, sexuality, gender or ethnicity, to lift themselves out of poverty.

As a Christian organisation, we believe every one of us deserves respect, care, and the opportunity to live a life of peace, dignity and worth. In a world with such wealth as ours, no one should go without food, shelter, security or any of the other basics we all need. Christian Aid Ireland works for and with people of all faiths and none, as well as with churches and other organisations, to promote sustainable development, strive for social justice and pursue our vision of a world without poverty. We do this by tackling both the causes and the symptoms of poverty so that everyone can achieve equality, dignity and freedom.

Gifts in Wills

A gift in your Will to Christian Aid is so much more than a sum of money.  Every gift for our work helps us to tackle the root causes of poverty as well as its effects. Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of dignity, freedom and hope, of power over their own lives. Our supporters know that their generosity helps people around the world not only to work their way out of poverty, but also to create a legacy of hope for their children and grandchildren.

Your Will can be a final expression of everything that matters to you in your life, reflecting your priorities and passions. Once loved ones have been provided for, a charitable legacy, even if just a small share of your estate, is a wonderful opportunity to provide hope and practical help to families and communities who live in poverty.  Your gift can change lives for generations to come.

If you would like to change the future, a gift in your Will to Christian Aid will be a statement that you want to give the gift of hope to others – today and tomorrow.

Music for Life, home of the African Children’s Choir
Long Business Description:

What we do

Music for Life is the official fundraising charity of the African Children’s Choir. Established in 1984 and empowering African children trapped in the cycle of poverty, to rise up and create positive, lasting change

We work to bridge cultural gaps and spread hope and joy while shining the spotlight on the desperate plight of children in Africa.  Each year a Choir is composed of especially needy children in Uganda who are selected to join the Choir Programme.   The Choir tour gives the children a world class education by allowing them to experience things that they could only read about in textbooks. Their confidence and self-esteem is greatly enhanced when they return home and are better placed to take advantage of the scholarship extended to them by Music for Life.

Music for Life is a Christian organisation.  We are uniquely positioned to do this because we make deep, long-term investments in children who go on to have an exponential impact on their families, communities and countries.

Gifts in Wills

Thanks to the legacies left by supporters of Music for Life, many children are able to look forward to a brighter future, one that includes a quality education, nutritious meals, clothing and medical care.  Leaving a legacy is a practical way to extend the support you have given to the African Children’s Choir during your lifetime.  You’ll be making an investment that will generate long-term returns and help Africa’s most needy children grow into productive, self-sufficient adults.  Even a small gift or percentage of your estate can make a huge difference to our work and your investment in our future will leave a legacy of hope and healing in the lives of children.

Plan International UK
Long Business Description:

Plan International UK

What we do

Plan International UK is a global children’s charity. We work to give every child the same chance in life.

In every child there’s a spark of imagination, curiosity and ambition. But not every child is born with the same opportunities.

When you face poverty or violence the odds are stacked against you. When you’re a girl it’s even harder to be safe, to be in school and to be in charge of your body.

All children deserve an education, healthcare and clean water.

All children deserve the chance to thrive.

We’re fighting so every child, especially every girl, knows their value. We’re fighting so the communities they’re growing up in – and the world around them – value them too. And if disaster strikes we’re there to protect children, keep them learning and help them recover.

We work to give every child, every chance. Are you in?

Gifts in Wills

Education is power, pass it on.

How will you make your mark on the world? If you include a gift to Plan International UK in your will, you’ll help the next generation of girls learn the most valuable lessons they’ll ever learn. Lessons in self-esteem, life skills and independence.

We understand that your loved ones should always come first and that including a gift in your will is a very personal decision. So we’d like to send you more information to help you give it some thought. Please contact us on the details below and we’ll be happy to help.

On behalf of every child who hasn’t yet met their full potential, thank you so much for considering a gift to Plan International UK. Your kindness could open up opportunities that many girls never dreamt possible.
