Donations to Metro Blind Sport

Participation in sport provides blind and partially sighted people with opportunities to integrate into society, to build peer group friendships, to increase confidence and self-esteem as well as gaining valuable physical exercise and improved fitness, health and wellbeing.

We need the support and involvement of individuals, companies and trusts to enable us to provide a broad range of sporting activities, first-class facilities and coaching for all blind and partially sighted people across Greater London.

Metro Blind Sport is a Registered Charity No. 1158098 (formerly 268076)

 

Leave a gift in your will

A Will ensures that the proceeds of your estate go to the people or organisations that you wish to benefit from them and in whatever proportion you decide.

If you do not leave a Will then the state will determine how your estate will be divided, to whom and in what proportions. It can be a lengthy process. You can give money to one or more chosen charities in your Will. It is very tax efficient because charity donations are excluded from inheritance tax.

Charities, like Metro Blind Sport, benefit because every penny of the money you donate can be used to provide sporting opportunities for hundreds of visually impaired people for many years to come.

Types of Legacies:

There are three main ways to leave Metro Blind Sport a gift in your Will. Your solicitor or financial advisor will be able to check everything over for you but it may be helpful for you to consider the options below in advance:
