Legacies and In Memory Donations

If you love wildlife, you’ll know how much pleasure can be had from seeing animals and birds – whether it’s spotting a timid creature in the undergrowth or watching the birds feeding in your garden. This pleasure lasts a lifetime, and once time has run its course, leaving a legacy in your will or donating on behalf of a loved one is a great way to give something back.

Leaving a Legacy

Remembering Cuan Wildlife Rescue in your will is a meaningful way to help us continue our work rescuing sick and injured wildlife, rearing orphans and returning them to the wild. It also helps us protect British wildlife for generations to come.

We are a registered charity and receive no government funding. Every donation, no matter how small, really does make a difference.

If you would like your legacy to go towards something specific, please let your solicitor know. For example, you could leave money for a new aviary. Feel free to contact the centre if you’d like to find out more about how the money could be spent.

A Donation Instead of Flowers

Your will is a way of telling your loved ones what you’d like to happen after you’re gone. Many people make it clear in their wills that they would like to see donations made to Cuan Wildlife Rescue instead of floral tributes. All these donations go directly to our work helping sick and injured wildlife.

If you’d like your loved ones to donate on your behalf, simply inform your solicitor. A short paragraph like the one below should suffice.

“I wish that there be no flowers at my funeral but instead donations be made to ‘Cuan Wildlife Rescue’ (charity no. 1096812), The Signals, Stretton Road, Much Wenlock, Shropshire, TF13 6DD.”

Tribute Funds

A regular donation made on a special date, such as a birthday or anniversary, is easy to set up and a great way to support sick and injured wildlife. If your loved one was passionate about wild animals and birds, this would be a fitting tribute to their life.
