Legacies  – A very special way to help preserve Hartlebury Castle for future generations

By remembering Hartlebury Castle in your will you are directly contributing to the charity fighting to preserve it.  Hartlebury Castle Preservation Trust receives a proportion of admission fees, and any money spent in the shop and the café. We also run events and workshops and hire parts of the Castle for weddings, parties and meetings.  All of this generates essential income but we still rely on the generosity of visitors, supporters and donors to keep the Castle open so that people can learn its fascinating history and enjoy its peaceful grounds.

The process

Making a will or changing your will is very straight forward but it is a serious undertaking and it’s important that you contact a Solicitor. Solicitors will charge a fee but you will get professional advice and ensure your wishes are accurately reflected.

There are two main ways to leave a gift –

  • A fixed lump sum (Pecuniary bequest)
  • A percentage of your estate after all debts and other gifts have been made (Residuary bequest)

Your Solicitor can advise which approach best matches your wishes.

Next steps

Your bequest can be completely anonymous. Or we are more than happy discuss ways your gift can be marked and any areas of our work that particularly interest you and you wish to support.

If you would like to have an informal discussion about your options, please contact Steve Bagnall, Director at director@hartleburycastle.com or 01299 250797
