How to include the Trust in your will
The information below is intended to help you when you visit your solicitor to make or update your will. There are two main ways of leaving a legacy to the Trust. Some wording for each is provided below. In both examples, please note that the Trust has charitable status for all UK and USA tax purposes.
‘I give free of tax to the North Craven Building Preservation Trust (NCBPT) the sum of £….. (preferably inflation linked to the Retail Price Index) and declare that the receipt of the NCBPT’s Chair of Trustees shall be full and sufficient discharge.’
‘Subject to the payment of my debts, funeral and testamentary expenses, I give free of tax the whole of my estate not otherwise disposed of by this my will (alternatively, x percent of my residuary estate) to the North Craven Building Preservation Trust and declare that the receipt of the NCBPT’s Chair of Trustees shall be a full and sufficient discharge.’
Bequeathing objects or archives
If you are thinking of giving memorabilia or collections to the Museum of North Craven Life, please contact the Honorary Curator in the first instance to discuss the most appropriate way to do this.
