Animal sanctuary is welcoming bequests
6:00pm Monday 9th September 2013 in News
A charity which faced closure four years ago is encouraging people to leave money to charities in their wills.
Oxfordshire Animal Sanctuary, in Stadhampton, which looks after around 200 cats and dogs, costs around £50,000 a month to run.
It was running out of funds and facing closure in 2009 when it was left a house by a benefactor.
As part of Remember a Charity Week it encourages people to put charities in their wills.
Sanctuary chairman Debbie Heath said: “Legacies are so important to us and some years they make up around half of our income.
“People donate regularly but a legacy is often an extra amount that comes outside the day-to-day running costs.”
