Leave a gift in your will

Tranquil landscape at sunset - Becca Nelson

A countryside for us all. Forever.

When you leave a gift in your will to CPRE, you’re helping our work to promote, enhance and protect the countryside that we all know and love.

Why gifts in wills are so important

Your gift can ensure that the countryside is rich in nature, accessible for all and protected for the future. A future where hedgerows and peatlands are restored to tackle climate change and local communities get a say on what gets built where they live. A future where brownfield sites are recycled, valuable farmland is protected, and deep, dark skies are enjoyed by all.

How to leave a gift in your will

Legacy gifts to a charity like CPRE are inheritance tax free. Plus, if you leave more than 10% you can reduce the amount of tax you pay on your remaining taxable estate.

If you would like to include CPRE in your will, you can create or update your will with any practicing solicitor. If you need to update your current will, we suggest you contact your solicitor to ensure that the changes you make are legally binding.

When you are ready to make or update your will and would like to leave a gift to CPRE, here is the essential information you will need for your solicitor:

  • Name: The Staffordshire Branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England
  • Address: CPRE Staffordshire, Eastgate House, 79/79a Eastgate Street, Stafford, ST16 2LG
  • Charity Number: 219443
