RSPCA Week

Remember A Charity week is fast approaching from 17th – 23rd September and the independent RSPCA Coventry, Nuneaton and District Branch is hoping it will help remind people to think of the animal centre when leaving their final will and testament.

A firm of solicitors in the Nuneaton will join forces with the Coventry and Nuneaton RSPCA Branch to raise public awareness of the vital role of legacies for the survival of their work. Willsons Solicitors, based in Coventry Street, Nuneaton will be offering a 25% discount on fees during Remember a Charity Week, beginning 17th September to anyone who leaves bequests to the local RSPCA Animal Centre based on Coundon Wedge Drive Coventry.

The animal centre serves the most desperate of animals in Nuneaton, Coventry and surrounding areas to the tune of over a 1000dDogs, cats, rabbits and small animals every year.

Trustee Val Graham from Kenilworth has taken on the role of legacy advisor since joining the committee this year.

“I have done voluntary work with animals for much of my life, including work on committees. I ended up rather disillusioned at the way some organisations use money and resources. After 10 years as a volunteer with dogs at the Coventry and Nuneaton RSPCA, my faith was restored. I have seen first-hand how every penny is spent. They punch way above their weight when it comes to re-homing, but this involves sacrifices and hard work. It currently costs around £450,000 a year to run the centre, and we are entirely self-funded.'

If you are thinking of arranging your will this could not be a better time and for those people who have had their life enriched by the love of a companion animal, your legacy will keep that bond alive to help other animals in years ahead.'

The animal centre is reliant on over £100,000 per year on legacies to match its expenditure to care for the animals, without the legacies the centre would simply not exist.

Glenn Mayoll Animal Centre Manager says ‘It is extremely important that anyone making a will and wanting to leave money to the centre ensure the details of the will name the branch and include our Charity number to ensure the funds come to local branch’.

If interested in making a will and leaving a legacy in for the local independent charity please call in at Willsons Solicitors, 4 Coventry Street Nuneaton, for leaflets and advice on wills. Or call Amy or Jeanette on 02476 387821.

Please ensure when making a will that you use the full branch information which is RSPCA Coventry, Nuneaton and District Branch registered charity number 223678.
