Leaving a legacy and remembering someone special

11 February 2016

Legacies and writing a Will to include the Lord Dowding Fund

Making a Will is the single most important thing we can do to look after those we care about, and the cause most dear to us. For information on how to write a Will and how to leave a lasting legacy for animals click here.

Donations in memory of loved ones

The Lord Dowding Fund (LDF) is extremely grateful to those who would like to arrange memorandum collections on behalf of loved ones. As always it is with mixed feelings that we are grateful for these vital funds to continue our work, and we would like to take this opportunity to assure you that your donation will be put to good use in order to have the greatest impact for animals.

If you would like to make a donation in memory of a loved one, there are many ways that you can do so. Once we have received your kind donation we will send you a letter of thanks to show that your donation has been gratefully received.

To make a LDF donation by post, please send cheques and postal orders to: Lord Dowding Fund, Millbank Tower, Millbank, London, SW1P 4QP. Please make cheques payable to ‘Lord Dowding Fund’ or ‘LDF’. Please let us know the name of the deceased whom you wish to have remembered with your donation.”
