The British School of Osteopathy is lucky to have supporters who make a huge difference to our ability to provide free treatment at our outreach clinics, student bursaries and the best resources possible, and we are grateful for their generosity. Thank you to everyone who has helped us with a gift, whether large or small.
It is always a wonderful surprise to receive an unexpected donation, and we were honoured to receive four legacy gifts during 2015. Iris Rosina Higgins, Elsie Layton-Smith and Margaret Spinks all kindly remembered the BSO in their Wills. We also received a legacy gift from Margaret Walker who left a statement that this gift was “for the training of osteopaths from one who has personally greatly appreciated their treatment over her lifetime.”
The impact of legacies on our charitable work is enormous, and we are deeply grateful to those who leave a donation to the BSO in their Wills. We were humbled to have been left such generous gifts from Iris, Elsie, Margaret and Margaret. In life, finding the spare money to donate to good causes can be a difficult. But many people are able to gift a small portion of their estate after death to make a significant difference to those in need.
Around 35% of people say they’d happily leave a gift to a charity in their Will once family and friends had been provided for and yet only a small proportion actually do.
