PEOPLE who want to leave money to a good cause in their Will are being urged to make sure the gift can be used as they intended.

The advice comes from Oxford-based law firm Blake Morgan ahead of Remember a Charity Week, which runs from now until Sunday.

The firm says some benefactors can be too specific about how they want their legacy used.

Laura Harper, senior associate solicitor said: “We have heard of charities being left lots of benches for their gardens, when actually they need cash for a vital project.

“It is therefore a good idea to contact the charity to ask if they have preferred wording.”
