Rena Dalley, loyal Barnardos supporter
Family and whānau are hugely important to Barnardos, so we know that when you make your Will your first priority will be to provide for your loved ones. A gift in your Will, of any amount, is welcome and can be simply stated, either in your Will or in a codicil (addition). When making or revising a Will you should consult your legal advisor to ensure it completely represents your wishes.
The following wording is suggested for leaving a gift in your Will (bequest) to Barnardos New Zealand:
“I give to Barnardos New Zealand, (% of estate, the residue of my estate, or sum of money, or write description of property or assets) for general purposes, for which the receipt of an authorised officer of the organisation shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my trustees”
If you choose to leave a gift in your Will then we would love to hear from you so that we can thank you and recognise you as a special member of the Dr Thomas Barnardo Society.
