You may have read about Take That doing a private gig for a fan and the fan paid £1m which will go to charity. Well, you don't need to be super rich to benefit charity and did you know that most charities rely on legacies in wills to continue doing their good work? Making a gift to charity in your will is easy and it can benefit your loved ones and reduce the amount of inheritance tax to be paid. There are some fantastic charities out there, for example, the Rob George Foundation  and our firm’s charity of the year CRY  but if you have no particular allegiance to a specified charity and benefit charities in Essex then the Essex Community Foundation will be the charity for you.
