Sussex Caring Pets is a small local volunteer-led charity where all the work is carried out by the volunteers themselves working from home. SCP receives no government funding and we are entirely reliant upon the generosity of our kind supporters. All our income comes from collections, sponsorship and donations, including those made in people’s Wills.

Unlike other larger charities Sussex Caring Pets has no paid staff or expensive buildings to maintain so all the money we raise goes directly to providing frontline services in hospitals, hospices, care homes and in mainstream and special needs schools.

So if you would like to include Sussex Caring Pets in your Will here are a few points to remember when you visit either a solicitor or a Will-making company or are considering doing it yourself:

  • Draw up a list of everything you own including property, money and other assets.
  • List the people and charities including names and addresses of those who you want to benefit from your Will – including Sussex Caring Pets if you wish ; address below.
  • Decide who you wish to be executors of your Will.
  • Take all of these details along to the solicitor or Will-making company who will draw it up for you – or just follow the guidance in one of the standard Will-making kits you can buy from a good stationers or bookshop.

BerylYou can also add a codicil to your existing Will if you would like to leaving a gift to Sussex Caring Pets. Your solicitor can provide further details or simply follow the guidance in the Will-making kit.

If you do decide to include Sussex Caring Pets in your Will it would be helpful if you could let us – so please drop us a line at:
