Leave a legacy

Every gift in every will, however large or small, makes a huge difference to our work.

Legacy gifts to charity are exempt from Inheritance Tax in the UK, and the government provides a further incentive when you leave 10% or more of your net estate to charity

It’s really simple – all your solicitor will need to include Chance to Shine in your will is our address and charity number:

Chance to Shine, Kia Oval, Kennington, London, SE115SW
Charity Number: 1123385 (England and Wales)

If you do not already have a will, or would like to create one, please use our free will service. By leaving a gift to Chance to Shine, you can help ensure that we spread the power of cricket to young people long into the future. 

If you would like more information about leaving a gift in your will, we’d welcome the opportunity to talk to you confidentially. Please email gabrielle.russell@chancetoshine.org

In addition to legacy gifts, we’re always touched when chosen as the beneficiary of gifts given in memory. If we can help with the collection of the donations in any way, please get in touch.

We know our supporters share our vision and passion to give all children the opportunity to play, learn and develop through cricket. Last year we were honoured to receive a legacy from Kenneth George James. Ken friends, and executors of the will, Bill Boyes and Bob Baxter have shared their experience of setting up the legacy.
