The best way to make your Will is through a solicitor. A qualified solicitor will ensure your wishes are legally and correctly represented, so simply let them know if you would like to leave a gift to Open Arms.
You will need to have the following details to hand:
Charity name: Open Arms Malawi
Registered address: Community House, 46-50 East Parade, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG1 5RR
Registered charity number: 1171686 (England and Wales)
An example of wording you could use is:
I leave my / X share (s) of my residuary estate for Open Arms Malawi, Community House, 46-50 East Parade, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG1 5RR, registered charity number 1171686 (England and Wales), absolutely for its general charitable purposes and I declare that the receipt of the treasurer or other proper officer for the time being shall be a sufficient discharge to my executors.
Legacies are generally exempt from inheritance tax, so a gift in your Will to Open Arms Malawi could be tax free for us and in some circumstances could reduce the amount of inheritance tax your loved ones are liable for. For more information, please visit the HMRC website.
