A lasting difference
"I have faith in Oxfam to do the right thing. And it doesn't have to be a massive donation: whether it's £1, £100 or £100,000, it'll make people's lives better."
"I'm doing the easy bit by donating," smiles Gerry. "It's not a massive thing, it doesn't cause me any hardship, but it will hopefully bring a lot of relief to a lot of people."
Gerry was inspired to include Oxfam in his Will by his passion for helping communities reap the benefits of clean, safe water. His generosity will create a lasting, life-changing legacy, as donations in Wills play a vital role in our work.
"Oxfam directly intervenes to make a positive difference," he says, "that's why I donate. Once all the usual channels had been explored in my Will - family, friends and so on - I thought, wouldn't it be good to leave a legacy to Oxfam? Why not? Why shouldn't everyone do it?"
