If you have left a legacy to the RSPCA or are thinking of doing so and you want Bridlington & District to benefit from your bequest, it is very important that the
legacy is worded correctly. If your will just states RSPCA then your entire legacy will go to our Headquarters in Horsham. If this is where you want your legacy to go, you need not take any further
If however you want your local Branch to receive your bequest then this what you must do
Include the wording "RSPCA for the sole benefit of Bridlington, Driffield & District Branch - registered Charity 232212" This will ensure that the Bridlington, Driffield & District Branch will receive your legacy"
If you need to change an existing will, it is not necessary to redo the will again, you can simply add a codicil for any amendments.
Please do not rely on your solicitor to give you good advice in these matters as they often accept a bequest to the RSPCA as just that and do not ask the question about whether you want the local Branch or the National Society to benefit, therefore legacies do not always go to where the donor intended. If you have any further questions regarding leaving a legacy to the RSPCA, email our Treasurer on firstname.lastname@example.org Your details will be completely confidential
