To help you find out more about this very special way of giving, we have put together a brief video for you to watch:

Why leave a gift in your Will?

By leaving a gift in your Will, you’ll be helping to provide vital aid to Gurkha veterans, their families and their communities. Your support is crucial in enabling us to continue our work in years to come.

A Will is one of the simplest ways to ensure that your wishes are followed and that the future of your family and friends – in fact, all the people and causes you care about most – are provided for.

Put your Will together for free

We’ve partnered with online will provider Farewill to provide all our supporters with a free will. You can complete your will in as little as 15 minutes and there is live web chat support on hand should you have any questions. After you’ve completed the your online will, one of Farewill’s will specialists will check it over and if they have any questions they will contact you right away.

Start your free will

Once your Will is ready, you can download a copy, print and sign it with two witnesses to make it legally binding.

Writing your will with Farewill includes one year of free, unlimited updates, and the option to pay £10 per year thereafter to update your will at any time. Claim your free will (RRP £90) with the UK’s No1 will-writer using the code GWT50.

Donations in memory

Our Book of Honour

To recognise the amazing gifts supporters have left us, we’ll be printing their names in our legacy Book of Honour. Our Book will be on display in our UK Head Office in Salisbury, where family members can look and take a copy of the page with their loved one’s name home with them.

We’ll also regularly update our digital version of the Book. Friends and family will be able to download and print their loved one’s page. The digital version of the Book can be found here.

With thanks to Ralph Lewis

As a Sergeant in the education corps, Ralph taught English to the Gurkhas and their families. He often talked about the Gurkhas when he returned home. He held them in very high regard. This was a very important period in Ralph’s life and he retained links with them right up until the last.

“My father was a very passionate advocate of the Gurkhas over the years, and he would have been delighted to know that the gift in his Will is helping people who were close to his heart. ”
