Leave a Legacy

There are so many ways to support Kilmarnock Horse Rescue in Sussex, but some of the most personal and heartfelt donations come in the form of legacies.

Leaving a contribution in your Will is a wonderful way to make a lasting difference to the lives of the many animals that come into our care.

If, after making provision for your loved ones, you would like to help Kilmarnock Horse Rescue with the ongoing work that rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes equines in need, we would be truly grateful.

You can be sure that every penny that we receive will be spent on the running of the rescue centre, which is dedicated to the care and well-being of horses, ponies and donkeys.

As you can imagine this level of commitment doesn’t come cheaply, which is why we are extremely grateful when you remember Kilmarnock Horse Rescue when making your Will.

To ensure your wishes take effect, we strongly recommend that you take independent professional advice on the contents of your Will, including any bequest you decide to leave to Kilmarnock Horse Rescue. It is important that the Charity is correctly identified and the extent of the legacy described in sufficient detail. We suggest that you take our recommended wording, (below), to your professional advisor for their information.
