Being in my early nineties with failing sight, I do appreciate receiving my audiobooks so promptly. It is so restful for my eyes to listen to these interesting and stimulating books provided by the staff and many volunteers at Calibre. I made it [Calibre] a top priority in my will as I feel it is such a helpful and worthwhile charity satisfying the needs of so many.
Mrs Allen, Gift in Will pledger, and Calibre member since 2016
Mrs Allen is just one of many of our members who has pledged to leave us a gift in her Will and to whom we and future Calibre members will always be grateful. We all know that it's important to have a Will, but for many of us running around and leading busy lives, it's something that often gets pushed to the bottom of the list. We recently sent out a member's survey and many of you told us that you would be interested in a free Will service. In response to that, we are so pleased to be able to now offer members and their families a free online professionally drafted Will through a company called Bequeathed. This service can be used to write a Will or amend an existing Will and there is no obligation to leave a gift to Calibre, although we will of course be eternally grateful if you choose to do so.
Over 40% of our running costs are covered each year by gifts left in Wills; Calibre simply couldn’t exist without these kind gifts. If you would like to find out more please click here.
