Legacies

Many people use their wills or legacies to leave their precious gifts of a legacy to a favorite charity. All gifts and legacies are free from Inheritance and Capital Gains Tax. It can also be changed later if you wish.

You can help others and save tax, by leaving a legacy to the Kent Surrey Sussex Air Ambulance Trust.

Legacies and donations for maintaining and improving this essential service are most gratefully received. Traditionally about one-third of our income has come from gifts left to us in Wills, which means that one in three missions are only possible thanks to someone having left us a legacy. Without the help of these people, it would be hard for us to continue to plan into the future.

Why not celebrate your life by creating a better future for all those who, one day, may need the life-saving skills of our doctors and critical care paramedics? Your support really can make a difference.

It is a wonderful opportunity to do something positive in your life to make an invaluable contribution to our work in the future.
