As a charity, we rely a lot on voluntary donations to enable us to continue with the restoration of the Montgomery Canal. Some people choose to make a single donation. Others make regular monthly payments – which enable us to plan ahead knowing what our income will be.

Some people are kind enough to nominate the Montgomery Canal in their Will. Such sums can be substantial and can enable inheritance tax bills to be reduced. In a period when money from public sources is hard to get and when such funders have extra topics they want covered, legacies are especially valuable as they can be spent directly on restoration works. In some cases, legacies can help to provide the match funding which public funders often seek.

The Restoration has always had support from fantastic groups of volunteers. But we still need to pay for materials and the hire of equipment.

When making a Will, there are different types of gift you can make

·         A specific sum of money – a lump sum

·         The whole – or a % - of your assets, after other gifts and expenses have been paid.

·         A particular item, such as jewellery, shares or a piece of land

If you consider making a gift in your Will, we recommend you speak to your solicitor or other advisers to ensure the wording is right so that your gift is used as you intend
