Leave a gift in your Will
Gifts in Wills are vital to Sense. They make up around a third of our fundraised income and help us to secure the future of our work.
Without these special gifts we would not be able to provide the essential support that deafblind people and their families will always need. We would have to cut back our services and make some difficult decisions.
Once you have looked after your loved ones, leaving a gift to Sense in your Will is a wonderful way to support deafblind people and their families in the future.
What gifts in Wills mean for Sense
A gift in your Will means you can be there to support deafblind people and families in the long term.
When a Sense supporter left a legacy to us he helped to fund a new member of staff at our Café 55 in Exeter.
Café 55 was built on the site of our day centre for deafblind people in 2009. The café is staffed by deafblind people with the support of specially trained volunteers.
At first it could only be open to the public one day a week. Now, thanks to a legacy, we’ve been able to bring a member of staff, Jane, on board to manage and recruit volunteers and open the café three days a week.
Café 55 in action
Gifts in Wills mean many different things for deafblind people; this is just one example of how legacies help.
