This week marks Remember a Charity Week, highlighting the impact gifts made in wills have on the work of Emmaus.

From 11 – 17 September, Emmaus Hertfordshire is encouraging it’s supporters to find out more about donating by leaving a gift in their will.

After taking care of family and loved ones, leaving a gift to Emmaus in your will is an amazing way to support us and costs nothing now, but has a huge impact in the future.

Anyone can leave a gift, no matter how large or small, and every donation will provide vital support. Leaving as little as 1% of an estate to Emmaus Hertfordshire will ensure more people who have experienced homelessness can find a home, support and training in our community – working their way to putting homelessness behind them. Every gift can help change someone’s world.

You can also leave instructions in your will to use Emmaus Hertfordshire’s House Clearance Service too, reducing the pressure on family members at this challenging time. We know that often, the reasons for needing a house clearance can be difficult and emotional, so our team will take care of everything for you, handling the process sensitively and treating items with care and respect.

Not only that, but by choosing Emmaus Hertfordshire for a clearance, the things that hold value to you, hold value to us too…they provide a home, meaningful work, a sense of belonging and self-worth for our companions, creating a lasting legacy.
