        If you haven’t yet made a will, making a pledge within it to leave a gift to Torch would really enable us to plan for the future.

        Pledges are also not legally binding so you are not committing yourself. You are simply allowing Torch to estimate future support for our work. However, if you wish it to be legally binding, we advise you to consult a solicitor to draw up a will for you, which incorporates your pledge.

        Please print off a Legacy Pledge Form or request one by calling us at +44 (0)1858 438260 or emailing

        Complete the form, retain a copy for yourself and send another to Torch Trust, Torch House, Torch Way, Market Harborough, LE16 9HL. Alternatively if you wish to incorporate it in your will now, take it along to your solicitor.

        If you have already made a will, but you want to leave a legacy to Torch, you can make an addition or change to your current will without re-writing it. This addition is called a codicil. A codicil is not legally binding unless it is part of your main will. We advise you to always seek the advice of a solicitor.

        Please print off a Codicil Form or request one by calling us at +44 (0)1858 438260 or emailing

        Leaving a gift to Torch

        What if you don’t have a will?

        You are not alone, 54% of adults in the UK do not have a will and this can leave uncertainty for loved ones at a challenging time. Writing a will can seem daunting and costly and can be tricky if you aren’t able to leave home. So we have partnered with Guardian Angel to provide you with a simple will for free, that would usually cost £90, that can be produced online, in person or over the phone.

        Leaving a gift to Torch in your will makes a huge difference to our ministry. There is no obligation, however most people using this service choose to include leaving a gift to our charity in their plans.

        Why do this today?

        • It’s quick and easy

        • It’s safe – Guardian Angel Wills are legally binding and checked by experts

        • It is free

        • You will have peace of mind that your affairs are in order

        This can be done face to face or over the phone if you would prefer

        Call 0800 773 4014 to arrange an appointment to start your will over the phone, or click the button below to do it online. Your discount code is TORCH-FREE.
