Whether you’re making a Will for the first time or simply changing an existing will, it’s easier than you might think to leave us a gift.

We know that your first priority when making a will is to provide for your loved ones, but many people find that even after they’ve done this they can leave something to a cause they hold dear.

Leaving a a gift in your will to a charity like the Aeron Vale Allotments Trust is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can support us. It costs nothing during your lifetime but will have a powerful impact for years to come. A small 1 - 2 acre field could provide food and a healthy past time for hundreds, possibly thousands of people in the future.

Of course, family and friends must be your first priority. But you can also leave a gift to the next generation – and many generations to come – when you remember our work. No gift is too small to make a lasting difference – we are grateful for every act of generosity and every penny we receive.

A small gift from you could be the deciding factor in whether we can establish another allotment site, where a community can grow it's own fresh, healthy food. You may help a poor family to get the chance to have a healthy outdoor lifestyle, whilst producing food for themselves and their children. By distributing our crops amongst impoverished and handicapped pensioners along with the socially deprived and those with genuine welfare needs in our communities means they can have FREE fresh produce. Food Banks can be topped up with fresh, home grown produce from allotment plots. All of that is possible when you give us the opportunity - with your gift in the form of a legacy - to provide the basic things needed to support  those with physical, mental and welfare needs in our society.

It’s a common myth that only the rich and famous leave money to charity when they die. This couldn’t be any further from the truth. The reality is that without gifts left in Wills by people like you, many charities like the Aeron Vale Allotments Trust wouldn’t even exist.



You can leave us a gift as a legacy so that our work can continue into the future. First, make sure that your friends, family and loved ones are taken care of. If you then wish to share what's left, you can donate from 1% of an estate to 100% or anything else left over after other gifts have been made.

Your Will lets you decide what happens to your money, property and possessions after you pass away.

If you make a Will you can also make sure you don’t pay more Inheritance Tax than you need to. Anything you leave to charity is free of Inheritance Tax so it can be a useful way of reducing your Inheritance Tax bill, while benefiting a good cause. Don't forget, If you leave without a Will, the law says who gets what!


You can write your Will yourself, but you should get legal advice, for example from Citizens Advice, or a solicitor - to make sure your will is interpreted in the way you intended. In this technological age you can even write a Will from the comfort of your computer chair! Click on the graphics on either side of this paragraph for more info . . . .

Finally you need to get your Will formally witnessed and signed to make it legally valid. You should note, that you can’t leave your witnesses (or their married partners) anything in your will.

If you want to update your will, you need to make an official alteration (called a ‘codicil’) or make a new will. You can’t amend your will after it’s been signed and witnessed. The only way you can change a will is by making an official alteration called a codicil. You must sign a codicil and get it witnessed in the same way as witnessing a Will.

Example wording that you, or your Will writer can insert in the document:

“I give the sum of £- (or specify a percentage of your estate, a gift or possibly e.g. the Land Registry field number reference if you intend to leave us a field for allotment plot gardens) to Ymddiriedolaeth Rhandiroedd Dyffryn Aeron (Aeron Vale Allotments Trust) at Ael-y-Môr, 17 Rhiwgoch, Aberaeron, Ceredigion. SA46 0HR (registered charity number 1166320) for its general purposes and I declare that the receipt of the Trust's treasurer or other proper officer of the said Aeron Vale Allotments Trust for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said legacy.”

So, you don’t have to be rich and famous to make a contribution that can make a difference to us. We can all do something amazing for the world, by remembering our favourite cause when making a Will.

You can eat sufficient food yet not be getting the nutrients needed, and malnutrition in the UK has increased sharply. The worst hit are the poor, the aged and children. The Faculty of Public Health have said conditions like rickets are becoming more apparent because people could not afford quality food in their diet. It comes after health figures recently revealed a 19% increase in the number of people admitted to hospital with malnutrition over the past year. More than 2,000 cases of patients with malnutrition were recorded by 43 hospital trusts in a single year. Estimates suggest 1.3 million people over 65 suffer from malnutrition, and the vast majority (93%) live in the community. Carers UK found that 60% of carers worry about the nutrition of the person they care for. One in six carers is looking after someone at real risk of malnutrition but do not have nutritional support of any kind.   THE AERON VALE ALOTMENTS TRUST PROVIDES ALLOTMENT PLOTS FOR THE GROWING OF FRESH ORGANIC FOOD IN THE COMMUNITY.
