Cobalt is one of over 200 charities taking part in Remember A Charity Week around the UK. We are urging our supporters to pass on something wonderful by leaving a gift in their Will to Cobalt, after they’ve taken care of friends and family. We are supporting the week by raising awareness of the importance of leaving a gift in your will to charity. The amazing work of Cobalt has been made possible by gifts in Wills over the past year.
Helen Tomes, Supporter Relations Officer, Cobalt said: “We are delighted to be part of this year’s Remember A Charity Week, encouraging our supporters to pass on something wonderful to the next generation. Gifts in Wills are crucial to our charity’s work – both now and long into the future. Gifts left in a Will help us to continue to support local people affected by cancer, dementia and other conditions for years to come”.
Rob Cope, Director of Remember A Charity, added: “Remember A Charity Week has grown year-on-year and I’m immensely proud that the 200-strong consortium is coming together to celebrate in these challenging times. This week offers a fantastic opportunity for charities to inspire their supporters to consider a cause they care deeply about in their Will and raise awareness of how this contributes to their vital work. Without this income, many charities simply would not exist and others would be forced to cut the crucial services so many of us rely on.”
