Why leave a gift

For over 25 years participants have been telling us that Odyssey has transformed  their lives. It has helped them to:

  • Deal with uncertainty
  • Face the future with new optimism and confidence
  • Return to work
  • Become a mum, dad, wife, husband again
  • Become more physically active
  • Take up a hobby or start volunteering
  • Return to college
  • Engage with the community
  • Appreciate life

In a recent survey of people who had attended Odyssey over the past 10 years it was found that the positive impact of a course was one which had had a lasting outcome on their lives.

One of the ways you could support Odyssey is to leave a gift in your will. Whether you are amending your current will, or drawing up a new one it is relatively simple (and tax efficient) to leave a gift. However, it is important that you seek professional legal advice and are aware that all charitable legacies are exempt from tax.

You may find the following wording helpful when drawing up your will:

To leave a legacy to Odyssey for a set sum (a Pecuniary legacy)

“I give free of tax the sum of £…….. to The Odyssey Project (Registered Charity Number:1045259) of 37 St Margaret’s St, Canterbury, CT1 2TU for the general purposes of Odyssey, and I declare that the receipt of their Treasurer or other proper officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my Trustee(s)”.

To leave a legacy to Odyssey for a percentage of your estate (a Residuary legacy)

“Subject to the payment of my just debts, funeral and testamentary expenses, I give the whole of my estate both real and personal property to The Odyssey Project (Registered Charity Number:1045259) of 37 St Margaret’s St, Canterbury, CT1 2TU for the general purposes of Odyssey, and I declare that the receipt of their Treasurer or other proper officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my Trustee(s)”.

To leave a Specific legacy to Odyssey

“I give my (description of specified item) free of tax to The Odyssey Project (Registered Charity Number:1045259) of 37 St Margaret’s St, Canterbury, CT1 2TU for the general purposes of Odyssey, and I declare that the receipt of their Treasurer or other proper officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my Trustee(s)”.

Please do let us know if you decide to leave a legacy to Odyssey, so that we can thank you properly on behalf of those who will benefit.
