Gifts in Wills have always been important to charities but never more so than this year. During Covid-19, blind and partially sighted people have struggled to access essentials like food and medicine. Social distancing has made it hard for some people to get out at all.

Over the last six months, the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) has supported people with sight loss in numerous ways, including extending our Helpline opening hours, offering new telephone services, such as Talk and Support, and securing priority supermarket delivery slots.

Gifts in Wills have been hugely important in funding this work, accounting for half of our voluntary income. An increase in public awareness and more gifts left in Wills helps RNIB remove more barriers for blind and partially sighted people.

That’s why we’re supporting Remember a Charity Week, to celebrate all the amazing people who support blind and partially sighted people across the UK by leaving a gift to RNIB in their Will. No matter how big or small, every gift counts and has a valuable impact. You can pass on something amazing to people in years to come by leaving a gift in your Will.
