support-legacies

TOLFA is generously supported by a number of legacies and memorial trusts which have not only helped our animals but brought comfort to family and friends. If you are kind enough to leave us a legacy in your will, it is vitally important that you do so through a solicitor or a professional will-writing service.

Role of Executor:

Specific bequests:

Tax
