The Cambridge supports ‘Remember A Charity Week’
The Cambridge Building Society will be once again supporting Remember A Charity Week which starts on Monday 12th September.
The week is an annual event designed to encourage more people to consider leaving a gift to charity when writing a will.
To support the event The Cambridge will be hosting a number of open days at their branches to allow people to pop in and have a chat with their Estate Planning Consultants, helping to dispel any myths that this is a subject that shouldn’t be talked about.
Andy Lucas, Chief Operating Officer at The Cambridge Building Society, said: “People plan their financial path throughout their life, and we’re keen to help our members plan beyond this, ensuring their wishes are known and their assets are passed on as they would want.”
This month The Cambridge are also supporting Addenbrookes Charitable Trust (ACT) as their Charity of the Month who are very much in support of Remember A Charity Week. Lucy Day, Gifts in Wills & In Memory Manager at ACT said “250 years ago, Addenbrooke’s was established thanks to a gift of £4,676 Dr John Addenbrooke left in his will. Gifts in wills remain an incredibly important source of income for Addenbrooke’s and the Rosie – they make up 30% of our voluntary income and have helped achieve the highest possible standards and outcomes in patient experience, clinical care, research and education.”
Estate Planning Consultants will be available for a chat and a cup of tea at open days in five branches.
