There is no obligation to leave a gift to Cardiff Women’s Aid when using the Guardian Angel service, but, after taking care of your loved ones, we would be incredibly grateful if you would consider doing so.

HOW TO LEAVE YOUR LEGACY

 

If you would like to leave a gift in your Will to Cardiff Women’s Aid, we strongly recommend that you speak to a solicitor to ensure that your wishes will be carried out as you intend.

You will need to take the following details with you:


Charity Name: Cardiff Women’s Aid
Registered address: 50 Meteor Street, Cardiff, CF25 0EJ
Registered charity number: 518608 (England and Wales)

 

An example of wording you could use:

“I leave [details of gift] for Cardiff Women’s Aid, registered charity number 518608 (England and Wales), for its general charitable purposes, and I declare that the receipt of the treasurer or other proper officer for the time being shall be a sufficient discharge to my executors.”

If you have remembered Cardiff Women’s Aid in your Will, we’d love to hear from you. Not only will this help us make plans for the future of our service, it also means we can thank you properly for your support. Anything you tell us will be confidential and not legally binding.

If you would like to speak to someone about your gift, please email elin.evans@cardiffwomensaid.org.uk or call 07485396466. We will be more than happy to help.

What your support could achieve

  • In our emergency housing/refuge units to purchase beds, bedding, toiletries, and clothing.
  • Providing women leaving the service with new accommodation supplies such as bedding and kitchenware.
  • Refurbishing refuge units (paint, carpets, labour costs) so women are provided a safe and warm environment.  
  • Supplies for our aftercare and recovery activities including craft supplies and group work journals.
