Other people's gifts

Leaving a gift in your Will helps us give nature a home in many different ways and places.

Why include us in your Will?

Two people who have recently decided to leave us a gift in their Will explain the reasoning behind their decision:

 

Not just in books 

Heidi Oliver has always been interested in nature and conservation, with a particular interest in hedgehogs. 

"I was so impressed by the work the RSPB do to support British plants and wildlife, not just birds, that I was very keen to become a member myself.

I decided to leave a gift in my Will as I think it is a brilliant way of ensuring there is protection for British nature for generations to come

People enjoy the wildlife we have in Britain, and nature provides a welcome break from our busy lives.

I hope the gift I’m leaving to the RSPB in my Will allows future generations to enjoy butterflies and hedgehogs, and not have their only access to be their pictures in books."

 

Protecting for future generations 

Stuart Robinson grew up on the banks of the River Dee in Chester, in a house with a large woodland garden.

"Birds and the garden, were my passion and what lead me to join the RSPB.

I have seen similar areas of habitat disappear, not just in cities but also in the countryside and wanted to address that.

I hope that I can help protect habitats for future generations. The RSPB aims to do just that because as much as I love them, it’s not just about the birds, but the entire ecosystem of which they are a part of.

The RSPB’s support and guidance has been excellent throughout. Discussing what will happen after one’s death is never easy, but it has always struck just the right tone."
