Remember a Charity Week is organised by Remember a Charity, of which Sand Dams Worldwide is a proud member. The Week takes place every September (this year from the 11th-17th) and it is a time when over 200 charities team up to raise awareness of legacy giving and the difference you can make by leaving a charitable gift to a cause close to your heart.

As many people aren't aware of this type of giving, Remember a Charity and Sand Dams Worldwide want to increase understanding of gifts in Wills and make this type of donation something that everyone considers.

Here is what Sand Dams Worldwide lined up for Remember a Charity Week:

Monday 11th September: Chairman’s blog – ‘A word about legacy giving’
