Leave a light on

Help people who need our counselling desperately by leaving a gift in your will to Bright Light.

Whether you have needed counselling or know someone who has needed our help especially with mental health and other life challenges your gift could help make a real difference to someone in need of help. However large or small, your legacy could provide additional support for many people who feel stressed, isolated and are struggling alone with little or no help. You will be sponsoring counselling sessions for people who have no money to pay for private counselling and helping our charity reach out to more people at their greatest time of need.

What is a legacy?

A legacy is a specific gift in your will. It could either be a sum of money, an item or it could be a share of the value of your estate after all bills have been paid and all considerations to family and friends have been honoured. Leaving a gift to charity has the added bonus of being exempt from tax, so it may reduce the amount of inheritance tax that is due from your estate.

Why leave a legacy to Bright Light?

Bright Light gives a personal guarantee that your legacy will reach people in greatest need of counselling and family therapy and will make a genuine difference to their lives – a great way for your generosity to last beyond your own lifetime by leaving a light on to support local people who are struggling with life’s challenges including mental health.

Why not ask your solicitor about leaving a legacy to Bright Light? Your lasting legacy will help to make a better life for people across the Lothians.
