Gifts in wills

Remember us in your will

If you would like to consider leaving a bequest to us, there are various ways to do this. The following information is designed as a guide to help – the will has to be made out to headquarters at Chelwood Gate as that is the registered address of the charity.

For a fixed sum legacy
If you wish to leave a certain sum, the format for this would be as follows:
I give to the Cats Protection, National Cat Centre, Chelwood Gate, Haywards Heath, RH17 7TT the sum of £_____, to be applied for the benefit of the HORSHAM AND DISTRICT BRANCH, and I declare that the receipt of the chief executive or other proper officer shall be sufficient discharge for the same.
For the residue
This is for leaving unspecified amounts after other bequests:
I give all my residue of my estate both real and personal to the Cats Protection, National Cat Centre, Chelwood Gate, Haywards Heath, RH17 7TT, absolutely to be applied for the benefit of the HORSHAM AND DISTRICT BRANCH, and I declare that the receipt of the chief executive or other proper officer shall be sufficient discharge for the same.
Of course, a solicitor can advise you on other variations, which you may prefer – the above are merely intended as a guide. You might also like to consider your wishes regarding your own cat or cats’ future in your will, as this may help to reduce stress for them.

For reference, the branch address is:
Cats Protection Horsham & District Branch
PO Box 466
Horsham
