“Through my legacy I want to make a lasting contribution to help children to lead long, happy & healthy lives”

Leaving a gift in your will is an easy way to help ensure that a cause you feel strongly about continues in the future.  However large or small, your legacy will help to fight food poverty before it creates life-long bad habits and effects.  Alexandra Rose Charity will use your gift wisely and locally – to improve the health, well-being and life chances of children whose families are on low incomes. 

Alexandra Rose Charity has been fighting injustice since 1912. Today, we know that the first 1,001 days of a child’s life from conception to age two are the most important in setting their future life chances. By leaving a gift in your will, you can help a small charity have a big impact on low income families around the UK.

How gifts in wills make a real difference

Thanks to the support of many people like you, legacies are at the heart of everything we do.

Gifts generously left in wills have enabled us to:

  • Tackle food poverty and support healthy eating
  • Give families the spending power and skills for the healthiest possible start
  • Support the local community by encouraging people to buy locally

Whatever your reason for giving, every single gift provides vital support for vulnerable families. No matter what its size, your gift will really make a positive impact and a lasting difference to the next generation by giving them a better start to life. What’s more, leaving a legacy won’t cost you a penny now and can even save tax on what you leave.

How to leave a gift

Supporting Alexandra Rose Charity through a gift in your will is actually very easy.  When you write or review your will, ask your solicitor or will writer to include a gift to us.  All they will need to know is what you would like to leave (either a fixed sum or a % of your estate), our name, address and charity no. This is:

Alexandra Rose Charity, Community Base, 113 Queens Road, Brighton, BN1 3XG

Charity number: 211535

If you have any questions or would like to discuss the impact your gift will make to families around the UK please get in touch at or on 01252 726171.
