Leave a lasting legacy

Your gift could help us to fight for children at risk on the streets now, and for years to come.

We know that your first priority when making a will is to provide for your loved ones, but many people find that even after they've done this they can leave something to a cause or charity that is important to them.

Leaving Railway Children a gift in your will is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can support us. It costs nothing during your lifetime, but will make a lasting difference for years to come.

Why Gifts in your will matter

A gift of any value in your will could have a powerful impact on the work that we are doing with children who are alone and at risk on the streets. Without such gifts we simply will not be able to reach as many children, or change perceptions of whole communities.

I have been able to succeed and prosper in life. I feel a moral duty to offer a gift, to give young children less fortunate than myself that same opportunity.
