A legacy is a way of showing your love and concern for those close to you, by making sure they will be provided for when you are gone.
It is important to realise that a legal will is the only way you can ensure your dependants will benefit from your estate. It’s also an opportunity for you to invest in the continuation of the Christian message - only Christians will support this work, so it’s in our hands.
Don’t let the Christian voice be silenced….
Making a will is an opportunity to help others and express your Christian commitment. By including a legacy to Premier, whose work is important to you, you can continue to make a difference to people’s lives even after your death.
A gift in your will can make a difference in so many ways and whilst it’s wonderful that so many lives have already been touched by this ministry, there are countless more to reach. Those yearning for hope – an eternal hope we proclaim together daily through all Premier’s channels.
Together we can build firm foundations to ensure a strong Christian voice for the future, and so we continue to count on you to help make this a reality.
Thank you for considering a gift to Premier in your will.
You may have seen a recent BBC TV Countryfile programme (30th April 2017) which featured the legacy of Felix Dennis, a colourful and controversial magazine publisher who died in 2014. After making provision for his family, he left most of his estate to the completion of creating and maintaining a forest of broad leaved trees, including oak, ash, birch, sweet chestnut, rowan and hornbeam in his home county of Warwickshire.
Already over 1 million saplings have been planted in 100,000 acres. It will be future generations that will benefit from the pleasure of walking in the Heart of England Forest, as it is now known, as these saplings grow into mature trees, gracing the Midlands landscape with a green canopy of calm.
Nearly 2 million people are now accessing Premier in different ways, and Premier wants more and more lives to be touched by the ministry of the radio stations, the magazines, the 365-days a year national help line, the websites and events that we run.
Whether saplings or mighty oaks in the journey of faith, Premier wants to be there, and continue to impact even more lives in the months and years ahead. A gift in your will benefiting a charity is a wonderful way to ensure that the issues or ministries you care most about will flourish and continue to benefit future generations. The apostle Peter wrote these words: ‘People are like grass; their beauty is like a flower in the field. The grass withers and the flower fades. But the word of the Lord remains forever’ (1 Peter 1:24-25, NLT).
We are so grateful to all those who have blessed this ministry with a gift in their will. Please consider whether you could support us in this special way and help us not only to remain, but to grow, and to reach out like the branches and roots of a mighty oak.
