Gifts in Wills

Memories that last a lifetime

What would you like your legacy to be? One of smiles, laughter and happiness. Of tiny toes touching sand, of coaxing a smile from a tired teenager, of seeing something new. Of making the weight of the world lift from the shoulders of a stressed carer?

A gift in your Will to Family Holiday Charity could mean that a family facing tough times feels worry and anxiety lift – even for just a short while. It’s the gift of space, time to think, take a moment and just breathe. To feel less like the world is small and closed. The feeling of being less isolated and alone.

Holidays like Gillian's are funded through donations and Gifts In Wills from people just like you.

Memories made on holiday last a lifetime – the little moments keep families smiling and offer shared memories to keep coming back to, even when times are more difficult.

A Gift in your Will to Family Holiday Charity will mean your legacy lives on in cherished memories. But your gift could also be the start of big changes families can make because they’ve been away together and had the space and time to think.

Like mum Louise, who came back from a holiday full of energy, and felt able to look at taking on a part time job.

Or like Karen, whose holiday 8 years ago was a pivotal point in her journey to where she is now.

At the time, I did appreciate the holiday of course, but it’s looking back that I realise how amazing that trip was for me and the kids. To get away completely, not have any responsibilities for a few days, to gather myself, prepare for the next onslaught of the things that were going on in my life at the time.

"My mum made sandwiches for the journey, my dad drove us all and we arrived at our little caravan by the sea. I spent time with the kids running around on the beach. My mum, dad and I talked and walked a lot – serious stuff, and laughter too. I don’t know if it was the fresh air, or the sound of my kids laughing, but the way I thought about things started to change for me.”

If you’d like your legacy to be smiling children, happier families and a sense of joy and hope, then please consider a gift to Family Holiday Charity
