A Gift In Your Will

We have been fortunate in our first 20 years to be left a small number of legacies to support the trust’s work in offering second chances to young serving and ex-prisoners, individuals like Lee Cutter (whose award-winning soap sculptures are shown right).

As we enter our third decade, we are planning to establish an endowment fund to secure the long-term future of the trust. A detailed announcement will be made at the 2021 Lecture. If you would like more details of the plans, please contact Peter Stanford, our director.

How To Gift Aid It

If you are a UK taxpayer, the Longford Trust can claim back from the Treasury 25 pence for every £1 you give us, but we can only do this if you complete the declaration (right). If you intend to make regular donations, all can be included.
