Former Strictly Come Dancing head judge and professional ballroom dancer, Len Goodman, and 2010 Glitterball trophy winner and actress Kara Tointon will be joining the British Liver Trust in support of this year’s Remember A Charity Week (7th–13th September 2020).
The British Liver Trust is one of over 200 charities taking part in Remember A Charity Week around the UK. The charity is urging their supporters to pass on something wonderful by leaving a gift in their Will, after they’ve taken care of friends and family. Much of the work of the British Liver Trust has only been made possible by gifts in Wills.
In addition to Len and Kara’s involvement, Remember A Charity Week will also see the launch of a heart-warming campaign inspired by 1970s favourites, The Wombles. The animated film shines a light on the importance of charities’ work, inspiring people to consider including their favourite charity in their Will. UK charities will also be spreading the word on the importance of gifts in Wills across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter throughout #RememberACharityWeek.
Audrey Cornelius, Head of Fundraising at the British Liver Trust, said: “We are delighted to be part of this year’s Remember A Charity Week, encouraging our supporters to pass on something wonderful to the next generation. Gifts in Wills are crucial to our charity’s work – both now and long into the future.”
Len Goodman commented: “This is my third year supporting Remember A Charity Week and I’ve had the chance to meet some of the fantastic people working hard for charitable causes. I’ve included a charitable gift in my Will after my family has been taken care of – it’s such a simple, easy thing to do that makes an enormous difference. Hopefully this week will inspire more people to do the same – just think what we could achieve if we all made that small change to our Will!”
