Gifts in kind

Gifts in kind are very welcome. For example Kyocera let us use a conference room and supply refreshments for our trustee meetings. We are always looking for free meeting rooms to run our training courses as well as free printing, new books and raffle prizes.

We also collect foreign and old coins, unwanted jewellery, printer cartridges and mobile phones to recycle. We have already raised over £400 in the last year by recycling these unwanted items!

Legacy Giving and Leave a Gift in your Will

When we make our wills, we naturally want to make sure our loved ones are cared for. But through your will you can also leave something special to the many hundred of children in Berkshire gain a life skill and continue to benefit from the support that we offer.

“The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.”
