It is possible to leave a specific item as a legacy in your Will. This is known as a specific legacy – for example, a piece of jewellery, or a painting. Normally, you would leave this to STARescue because you know that we would be able to use the item for our work, or because we would be able to sell the item and use the sale proceeds towards our work. If this is your wish, the following wording in your will would make this clear:
"I make the following charitable gift absolutely to STARescue, The Small Animal Welfare Charity of Basingstoke, Registered Charity No. 1075974, (a clear description of the item(s) to be bequeathed), with the full power to realise such assets and to apply the proceeds to the general purposes of the Charity, and I direct that a receipt of the treasurer or other officer at STARescue shall be a good and sufficient discharge of my Executors."
