Leave a Legacy. Leave a Lifeline
Challengers work with over 1,400 families with disabled children each year, many of which refer to us as a “lifeline.”
When the time is right for you to write your Will, it is only right you take care of your loved ones first. However, you may consider a gift to charity. By remembering Challengers your support will help to ensure that every child, regardless of their impairment has the same access to play and leisure as other children and the opportunity to reach their full potential.
We work with 1,400 individual children each year and it can cost around £100 for a child to attend Challengers for a day. With each child attending an average of 20 times a year – a gift of £2,000 could make a big difference.
Leaving Challengers a Legacy will help to make sure we can support and meet the needs of disabled children
who need our help for many years to come.
How we will use your gift
Legacies help us to improve our vital facilities, develop services in new areas and work with more disabled children and young people every year. Your gift, however large or small, would help us to support families and their disabled children in the future.
Why make a Will
Making a Will is the only way to ensure that your assets go to the people and causes closet to your heart. You also minimise the tax you pay – as we are a registered charity, leaving a gift is tax free and will reduce Inheritance Tax on your estate.
A recent change in the law also means that whilst charitable legacies remain exempt from Inheritance Tax, if 10% of an estate is left to a charity such as Challengers, the rate of Inheritance Tax on the remainder of the estate is reduced from 40% to 36%. This change means that not only do charities benefit but that family and friends benefitting under the Will could receive increased legacies as a smaller amount of tax is due.

Challengers Legacy Pledge Form
If you have already remembered Disability Challengers in your Will or you intend to do so, we very much appreciate your support. We know that a Will is very personal matter and some people prefer not to disclose details, however, should you wish to tell us about your intentions we would be delighted to hear from you and, of course, would treat such information with the upmost confidence.
To tell us about your intention to donate to Disability Challengers, please download the form (by clicking on the download button) and return to:
Thank you - your support really will make a big difference.
Make a Pledge
Gifts left in wills are really important to Disability Challengers. However even if you haven't made a will, making a pledge to do so in the future would really help us to find out about your future intentions.
Pledges are not legally binding so by filling out this form you are not committing yourself! You are simply allowing Disability Challengers to confidently estimate future support for their cause.
Leave a Legacy
If you have already made a will but you want to leave a legacy to a charity you can make an addition or change it without re-writing your current will. This addition is called a codicil.
To leave a legacy to Disability Challengers please download the codicil form below and take it along to your solicitor.
Please note however that this form is not legally binding on its own and has to be part of your main will. We advise you to seek the advice of a solicitor.
If you have any questions about leaving a legacy to us, please contact Disability Challengers directly – they will be happy to discuss this with you.
