Leaving us a Bequest in Your Will
Did you know that you can leave this branch a donation as a legacy?. The RSPCA is a trust organisation so is able to act as an executor and administer your estate without charging a fee. The RSPCA’s legacy department has fully qualified staff that can also see to the welfare of any animals that may survive you. You can specify whether you want the National RSPCA or a local branch such as the RSPCA Lincolnshire North and Humber (Scunthorpe) to benefit from your legacy. We are always extremely grateful to people who think of the RSPCA when they are making their wills. If you wish your bequest to be used for the value of local animals, it is essential that the wording used be unambiguous. YOU MUST QUOTE THE CHARITY NUMBER OTHERWISE THE LEGACY WILL NOT REACH THIS BRANCH. Our charity number is 234838
For a bequest to be made to the local branch, the following format should be used:
"I bequeath to the RSPCA North Lincs & Humber Branch CHARITY NUMBER 234838 the sum of £*** free of all duties and taxes payable at my death and I declare that the receipt of the Treasurer or other proper officer for the time being of the said Branch shall be sufficient discharge to my trustees."
