Leave a gift in your will to Millwall Community Trust

Leave a gift in your will to Millwall Community Trust

Did you know that you can change the future of the Millwall Community Trust with a gift in your will?  Around 1/3 of people want to or intend to leave a gift in their will but fewer than 1 in 10 actually get around to doing it.  If that changed then it would transform our future.

Millwall Community Trust is now able to offer a FREE will service to anyone prepared to leave a gift in their will to support the vital work it does in the community to assist vulnerable people in the areas of poverty, health, education and employment.

Thank you in advance for your support and for considering leaving Millwall Community Trust a gift, however small, in your will.  A gift of just 1% of your estate means that 99% will go to those others closest to you like family and friends.

Millwall Community Trust’s vision is to empower and support individuals to improve their lives and their community.

We work with a range of people in the community improving health, education and employment, and reducing crime.

Thank you for considering leaving Millwall Community Trust a gift in your will. We know this is an important decision. Your gift will help us to support more people to reach their full potential.

‘‘Millwall Community Trust gave me the opportunity to access their study programme, which has now given me the platform to go to University”

‘‘I was struggling to find employment, once I left school four years ago. Millwall Community Trust gave me an apprenticeship in the football industry and my confidence and self- esteem has improved no end”

 Zak – Apprentice 

‘‘Millwall Community Trust recently received a legacy from a supporter, who had left a gift in their will to support our work. This has enabled us to invest in the organisation, ensuring its sustainability for the next generation, which in turn will support improvement in community lives via sports, education, health and employment.”

Sean Daly, Millwall Community Trust Chief Executive

 

ANDREW’S STORY

Get started with Millwall’ supports young people and adults that want to start their own business. The programme provides support with training, funding and mentoring. The community trust staff acts as mentors covering everything including business planning, marketing, sales, budgeting and tax as well as providing ongoing planning, developing once the business starts trading.

Andrew Burnett is one budding businessman that has benefited from the programme. Andrew was helped to start a Fit 4 Life gym in Millwall’s Lions Centre.

Andrew said of the opportunity “Without Millwall’s support in providing the daily advice, guidance and support that I get from my assigned mentor, there is no way that I would be able to say I manage a gym like I can today.  My dream is for the gym to be part of the local community and particularly the young people to keep them off the streets and divert them into positive activities.”

Andrew’s mentor commented “The improvements Andrew has made week on week have been fantastic which is all due to his hard work and commitment to the young people and community we collectively serve.”

Andrew added “This has been an unbelievable opportunity for me and something I have always wanted to get into but never had the resources, support or business experience to make it a reality”
