Trust’s appeal

BELPER-based Derbyshire Wildlife Trust has been highlighting the importance of making a will, saying that it wants people to not only to make sure loved ones are provided for, but also to help protect our natural heritage.

It says donations in supporters’ wills to it have helped the trust protect local wildlife by contributing to the purchase of nature reserves and conservation projects.

Local solicitors are backing its campaign to encourage more people to bring their will up to date by offering discounts to Trust members and supporters, some of which are valid just during September.
